Click here for an awesome video about our recent seagrass publication, featuring our stars Joleah Lamb and Drew Harvell.
Check out the NYT’s coverage of Joleah Lamb’s publication on the importance of seagrass ecosystems to the health of humans and other organisms here.
Hot off the press, ‘Seagrass ecosystems reduce exposure to bacterial pathogens of humans, fishes, and invertebrates’ makes the front cover of Science 17 Feb 2017. Joleah Lamb, our post-doctoral affiliate, along with her team found that coastal seagrasses reduce bacteria that are pathogenic to humans, fish, and invertebrates. This exciting study has been covered by The New York Times, BBC, and the Quirks & Quarks podcast, among others!
On July 20th, Drew gave a presentation at the San Juan Community Theatre on the Blaschka glass inverts and our search for their living counterparts. She also screened David O. Brown’s Fragile Legacy and did a book signing for A Sea of Glass!
July 2016’s FHL Tide Bite features our search for Blaschka matches at Friday Harbor Labs!

The Guardian featured the Blaschka invertebrates and Drew’s quest to find them! Read it here.
Note: Riftia is a deep sea tube worm – the one shown in glass is Pista cretacea.
I know we’re late to the party…
For its Things to Do column for May 20-27, the Cornell Chronicle lists Corning’s Blaschka Exhibit!
The Art Newspaper posted an article about Corning’s exhibit featuring Cornell’s Blaschka Collection!
Scientific American posted an article about the Blaschka glass’ metaphor for our fragile oceans.
Drew’s research has focused on inducible and chemical defenses, invertebrate ecology, and disease ecology in changing times – OA is not her primary area of research. That credit goes to a number of incredible researchers such as Nina Bednarsek and Alex Gagnon (among many others)!
