Summer in the marsh

After a not very brief respite, I am back in the blogging world. This summer, I spent my days knee-deep in mud, stumping doggedly through the marsh for the sake of science. Here I am with a lovely pair of Sesarma Reticulatum crabs, which would probably have pried a good chunk of my nose off if I had let them get any closer to my face. Incidentally, these crabs also snip and ingest chunks of cordgrass at such a high rate in certain marshes that they are causing die-off! More on this later. Happy blogging!
