Transformation with Connor Butler
Play • 44 min

Ovid's 'Metamorphoses' begins, 'I intend to speak of forms changed into new entities'.  In this podcast, we do just that. In this episode, we learn about insect metamorphosis, how it occurs, and how we as humans relate to this strange process. Tom speaks with Connor Butler, scientist and ecologist, about insect transformation and lifecycles, with particular focus on Dung Beetles. Connor also runs us through the transformative lifecycles of frogs and other amhpibians (as a comparative exercise, which does not invalidate this podcast's remit).
