About the Author

Drew Harvell is Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University and Curator of the Blaschka Marine Invertebrate Collection. Her research on the sustainability of marine ecosystems has taken her from the reefs of Mexico, Indonesia, and Hawaii to the cold waters of the Pacific Northwest. She is a Fellow of the Ecological Society of America and the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, a winner of the Society of American Naturalist Jasper Loftus-Hills Award, and a lead author of the oceans chapter in the recent U.S. Climate Change Assessment. She has published over 120 articles in journals such as Science, Nature, and Ecology and is coeditor of The Ecology and Evolution of Inducible Defenses.

Reviews

"The author makes an eloquent plea for marine biodiversity conservation." Library Journal "Harvell's encounters with rarer creatures of the deep are as exciting for the reader as they were for her, but the takeaway from A Sea of Glass is an SOS call for a change in human behavior." Hakai Magazine "Stunning photos ... contextualize the dramatic taxonomic and ecological shifts in ocean life over the past 150 years." Nature "Harvell seems to channel the devotion that motivated the Blaschkas." The Guardian "A wonderful example of the intertwining of science and art where each expression of the wonders of the human mind sparks another." The Explorers Journal
