I am a PhD candidate studying jellyfish development and evolution at Brown University. I've participated in numerous research expeditions, studying jellies all over the world, from Africa to the abyss. I am currently studying the beautiful mauve stinger jellies, found in the Mediterranean, and the ghostly Atlantic stinging nettles found on the US east coast.

  1. Are you aware of any video of sea dandelions? We would love some to show in the Marine biology portion of our Oceanography course. I have found stills only, and wonder if there is any high quality video/movie available of these.

    • Hi Carol–I couldn’t find any when I wrote this article. Though I know they exist because I learned about these guys through video. If you’re really interested, MBARI may have some on file. (go Brown!)
