view from hopkins marine stationI have to admit that I never noticed or cared for small red algae before I took Judith Connor's Marine Botony class here at Hopkins Marine Station. After spending three months with Connor, I have not only learned a great deal about algae, but I have spent entire dives being totally distracted by red algae, to the point where I actually missed a passing whale! My growing appreciation for algae, especially those tiny reds, is a testament to Connor's incredible teaching ability and infectious love of algae. I also owe a huge thank you to Patrick Martone, our T.A., who never became tired of the question, "Patrick, what is this?" I would especially like to thank Freya Sommer, (DSO for Hopkins and my favorite dive buddy) for all her help searching for Antithamnion.
