Using a coexistent suite of cnidarian hydromedusae with different predation modes, this project uses lab and in situ techniques to establish how predation patterns are altered in turbulence. The project is focused around four field seasons at Friday Harbor Labs (FHL). This season we plan to focus primarily on data analyses and writing as well as using a collimated lighting system and high-speed videography to compare feeding strategies in still water among different hydromedusae species.
