The Queer Ecologies Research Cluster meets every quarterly investigate how sexuality and concepts of nature have been historically linked. In particular, we are interested in how evolutionary and ecological science has informed what is “natural” and how we use this information to delineate certain sexual behaviors as normal or aberrant. Queer Ecologies seeks to examine the historical making of the natural as it relates to sexuality while communicating the overwhelming diversity of sex and gender in biology.
Looking for Marla
Clownfish are sequential hermaphrodites which mean they can change from male to female during their lifetime.
This biological phenomenon was left out of the story of Finding Nemo, and so we decided to create the story Looking for Marla to help correct and share clownfish biology.
