Introducing Andrea L. Crowther
Andrea Crowther is a graduate student at KU and is interested in the taxonomy, biology, and evolutionary relationships of sea anemones. Andrea’s doctoral research focuses on shallow tropical sea anemones that possess branched outgrowths housing zooxanthellae and defensive spheres dense with stinging capsules. Andrea will spend two weeks (13 November - 2 December 2009) in Moorea, French Polynesia collecting sea anemones for her research and working with members of the Moorea Biocode Project (www.mooreabiocode.org). Blogs and photos from her fieldwork will be entered here at Field Notes.
