From the opportunistic "have-a-go" approach of octopuses to "accessory males" that supply female anglerfish with a lifetime of sperm, author Jon Copley explores the sex lives of deep sea creatures.
Jon Copley is a marine biologist whose research explores life in the deep ocean that covers most of our world. As a "bathynaut", he went on the first minisub dive to the world's deepest hydrothermal vents and on the first minisub dives to reach 0.62 miles (1 kilometer) deep in the Antarctic. Jon is also a professor of ocean exploration and science communication at the University of Southampton in the U.K., a popular science writer and the co-founder of SciConnect — a company that provides training in communication and media skills for scientists to share their work more widely.
Jon is the author of "Deep Sea: 10 Things You Should Know" (Orion Publishing, 2023) and "Ask an Ocean Explorer" (Hodder & Stoughton, 2019).
