A fantastic blog by Linsey Haram and Kaitlin Kinney out of Dr. Jeb Byers’ lab at the University of Georgia on our *favorite* non-native seaweed Gracilaria vermiculophylla. Linsey is a PhD student in the Odum School of Ecology studying the effects of Gverm on salt marsh ecosystems and Kaitlin is a graduate of UGA, now a technician in the Byers lab. I met these lovely ladies on the mudlfats of SC and GA – and there is something about pluff, Gverm, and boating adventures that bonds you for life! Thanks for spreading the word about this seaweed and the life of a mudflat ecologist ladies!
Here’s a link to their blog – most appropriately entitled “snailsnotwhales”:
