About the Author

Lisa-ann Gershwin is director of the Australian Marine Stinger Advisory Services. She was awarded a Fulbright in 1998 for her studies on jellyfish blooms and evolution, and she has discovered over 150 new species-including at least sixteen types of jellyfish that are highly dangerous, as well as a new species of dolphin-and has written for numerous scientific and popular publications.


"A comprehensive summary of the irresistible rise of an arguably unstoppable creature." (Nature) "Stung! evokes the danger of jellyfish blooms but, even more fundamentally, it is about the real effect of the collapsing oceans.... Extremely important, wellwritten, and well documented." (Huffington Post) "This well-researched book is not just about jellyfish, but rather about the current and future state of the world's oceans. Gershwin has done a superb job.... As she guides readers through the basics of jellyfish biology, she shows how the characteristics of these animals make them ideally suited to take over stressed envrionments and gives examples of how they have already done just that.... Highly recommended." (Choice) "Gershwin is a scientist who can write. She is a scientist, a conservationist, a public conscience, and a prophet. 'Prophet' is a mantle which nobody dons willingly because part of the definition of 'prophet' is that nobody listens to the warning until it is too late. It is probably not too late yet. So read Stung!. Then start making noise." (Audubon)"
