Public Lecture: Evolution of the Body Snatchers

In this public lecture, Professor Robert Poulin from the University of Otago, New Zealand, will give unique insights and share some fascinating examples of the amazing diversity and bizarre lives of parasites. He will take us on a tour of the world of parasites, debunk several myths about them, and promote a greater appreciation of their unique biology. The mere mention of the word ‘parasite’ is enough to fill the average person with contempt and disgust. Even professional biologists think little of parasites; they are widely seen as degenerate organisms running counter to progressive evolution. Yet parasites are capable of amazing things, and the lives they spend in the nooks and crannies of their hosts are as full and complex as those of any other organism. Many parasites sense what is happening outside the host and adjust what they do inside the host accordingly. Others live in structured colonies with division of labour, a phenomenon we normally associate only with ants and bees, or with humans. Perhaps most impressive, parasites can take control of how their host behaves, turning the host into a puppet and making it do strange things for the parasites’ own benefit.
