Heading to Croatia to conduct a new study!
I am headed to Croatia in the summer of 2010 to conduct a new research study in the Adriatic Sea. I will be focusing my research efforts on studying an invasive plant species called Caulerpa taxifolia. This green algal species has become an invader of the Mediterranean Sea, and is now beginning to take over regions of the Adriatic Sea.
In July, a group of fellow scientists and friends will be joining me to sail the Adriatic, cycle eight different islands, and study the science in the region for two weeks both in the water and on land. Our observations will be recorded in a series of science poems that will incorporate qualitative and quantitative data that we record in the field.
Stay tuned for more information about this new research study!
