Insects that evolved on land have systems of respiration, movement and form built for terrestrial life. Aquatic insects have had to adapt in a variety of ways to make their terrestrial systems work in underwater habitats. Join us as Chris Goforth, Head of Citizen Science, shares the many ways aquatic insects have adapted to an aquatic lifestyle. You’ll learn how insects breathe, move, and live underwater as we highlight examples of aquatic adaptations.
