Grow Out On A Limb

August 7, 2020

These salamanders don’t grow up—but they do grow back. When their organs are removed or injured, they can regenerate them flawlessly. Is it because of a mutation that prevents metamorphosis? Perhaps, but there’s more to the story.  

In this episode, we talk to James Monaghan (associate professor of biology).
