Copepod Swarm Catcher
  Edward J. Buskey...

     Edward J. Buskey, a zooplankton ecologist at the Marine Science Institute at the University of Texas, and his students study trophic interactions within the planktonic food web in mangrove channels on Twin Cays.

     Their research at the Smithsonian's Marine Station in Belize has focused on behavioral ecology of zooplankton aggregations in mangrove environments, including copepod swarms and mysid schools.
