I would like to thank Rob DeConde for supportively letting me monopolize his computer to make this website, James Lopez for the use of his computer, scanner, CD burner and technical support, Caren Braby for helping with the digital cameras and being a great resource all around, Judith Connor for helping me collect and section algae and also serving as a tremendous resource, Ben Hale for the data on tensile strengths of algae, and the whole marine botany class of 2001 for some great days snorkeling.
