The first is called, "Flamingo's Tongue." This flamingo tongue snail (Cyphoma gibbosum) grazing on a purple sea fan is different from other snails in that its fleshy tissue (known as mantle) sits on the outside of its shell rather than inside the shell. The markings are actually on the mantle not the shell.
The second is called, " Monitoring dune invasion." In order to assess the impacts of adding sand to our dune communities (beach nourishment), designated plots were monitored over time. In this plot, it was observed that adding sand promoted the success of and invasive sedge species.
