BRAWLEY COMMENTS IN WASHINGTON POST STORY

August 10, 2009

 

Comments from Prof. Susan Brawley of the UMaine School of Marine Sciences are in a Washington Post story (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/08/02/AR2009080202128.html) about a new kind of seaweed that is spreading through the Baltic Sea. Scientists are taking a close look at the seaweed, known as narrow wrack, because of implications related to the Baltic's ecology and general health. Brawley differs with some of the other experts looking at this issue with regard to whether narrow wrack should be designated as a species and how it reproduces. Another expert quoted in the story, Ester Serrao, is a professor at the University of Algarve in Portugal. She earned her Ph.D. at UMaine, under Brawley's direction, in 1996.
