Secrets of the Stomatopod: An Underwater Research Adventure

Roy Caldwell

Although Roy Caldwell grew up on a farm in Iowa, and didn’t see the ocean until he was 21 years old, he is now a well-traveled marine biologist, and has specialized in studying different aspects of stomatopods and other tropical marine invertebrates.

Roy Caldwell was interviewed about stomatopods in general and his Aquarius mission as part of UC Berkeley’s “Conversations with History” series. For a transcript of the interview, see the globetrotter website.
