     As mentioned on the Home page, the photograph at the top of each page was taken at Southwater Key, a location close to Carrie Bow Cay field station where much of the ostracod research used to put this website together has been obtained and studied. This research was carried out by Anne Cohen, Elizabeth Torres, Gretchen Gerrish, Jim Morin and Trevor Rivers. The photo was used with permission from Gretchen Gerrish.
