Zostera marina is a seagrass species, commonly known as eelgrass, that is found on both coasts of the United States, as well as in Europe. Unfortunately, Zostera is disappearing all over the place, including right here in New York. This could have devastating impacts on animals that rely on eelgrass as foraging grounds, or, as is the case with scallops, use it as a refuge from predation. This is its story, as seen through the eyes of an aspiring graduate student...

So I am not sure how this blog roll tag meme quite got started. Chuck over at Ya Like Dags tagged me, and Mike at Cephalove tagged him. The idea is that science bloggers of substance (I am so excited to have substance) tag each other to answer a few questions. Since I have been tagged, here it goes:

1) Sum up my blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words

2) Tag 10 other bloggers of substance in the hopes they check this blog regularly and thus continue the meme. (By the way, I didn't know what a meme was, I had to look it up. Thats how internet savvy I am).

OK, so:

1) Like to use pictures to tell my stories about scallops.

2) Not sure that I know 10 bloggers, but I'll give it a try:
Kim over at Ms J's Marine Ecology Class
Mark at Blogfish
Alli at Ocean Treasures
Chris and Kim at Seagrass.LI
Owen at Metro Environmental
Dan at Fish Schooled
Tim and Lindsay at Southern Cross

Well that's all I have, but I feel it a valiant effort.

WooHoo! I cannot believe I made your list :) Now I have to look up a meme and figure that out. :)
