Census Scientist’s Images Featured in BBC Earth News

A recent article in BBC’s Earth News highlights the work of Census researcher Kevin Raskoff.  His research on Arctic and Deepwater jellies and jelly-like creatures has yielded some intriguing discoveries as well as stunning images and video.  This article discusses some of the findings from the 2005 Hidden Ocean Expedition, which are currently in press and will soon be published in Deep Sea Research Part II.  These results suggest that jelly populations and diversity in the Canada Basin were much higher than expected and that one of the most common jellies found was a Narcomedusa entirely new to science.  Both the BBC article and the journal article are available online.
