Yes! The creature in Alien is a possible reality somewhere in the Universe. A parasite may be the most numerous species on Earth. Some parasites live for many years and may be potentially immortal. Some are parasitic castrators, others completely control host behavior, and some slowly eat their hosts inside out. If we could "see" all the parasites where would they be? How large are they? How long do they live? How do they make a living? What do they get from this life style? How does it impact the human condition?
With Dr. Armand Kuris, UCSB Professor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution & Marine Biology
