Summary

An evolutionary biologist at the University of Hawaii, Christie Wilcox studies the evolution of toxins in lionfish, scorpionfish, and species like the Irukandji jellyfish. With Venomous, she takes us on a biochemical tour of the natural world, examining how certain species have evolved the ability to defend and kill with venom.
