My name is Alaina Weinheimer. I am a rising senior at Penn State majoring in Biology-ecology and minoring in Marine Science and Microbiology.
I originally began writing this blog as an honors project for a Biological Oceanography class I took junior year. Each week I post a summary of a scientific journal article that relates to lecture for that week. Since, I no longer have lecture for that class, I will pick the journal articles based on date and relevance to conservation. I will do my best to explain concepts in an interesting and easy-to-read manner. Please comment with questions about the content and feel free to make suggestions about my writing style.
I also include posts about my path as an aspiring marine conservationist and other posts about anything I find interesting related to the sea.
I hope you learn as much as I learn along the way!
