Tonight’s guest on Inquiry is KENNETH CATANIA. He is the Stevenson Professor of Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University. Throughout his career, he has studied the sensory adaptations of some very strange creatures like the Star-nosed Mole, the Tentacled Snake, and the Electric Eel. He has even looked into why Worm Grunting works. All these amazing tales of true research science are found in his new book GREAT ADAPTATIONS: STAR-NOSED MOLES, ELECTRIC EELS, AND OTHER TALES OF EVOLUTION’S MYSTERIES SOLVED.
