For our ‘Caught in the Act’ feature today, I found the lovely Kylla Benes measuring the reproductive effort of fucus seaweed. Kylla is in the middle of one of those experiments that addresses an important and straightforward question, but requires long stretches of tedious work (a fair description for most experiments, I’d say). Kylla collected seaweed from 20 quadrats and is measuring the size and relative proportions of reproductive sections on the seaweed. Kylla says today’s measurements will take two people about 6 hours to complete, and she is halfway through. Keep up the good work, Kylla!
