Volvox video

Jeremy Pickett-Heaps from the University of Melbourne shared this nice video of Volvox carteri development:

I will pick one nit by saying that “the ultimate expression of Volvocalean evolution” seems unnecessarily progressivist to me: by what criteria is Volvox carteri judged to be superior to, say, Pleodorina starrii? Overall, though, it’s a great video, with lots of beautiful time-lapse footage.
