Drew Harvell is Professor of Ecology at Cornell University, Curator of the Blaschka Glass Marine Invertebrate Collection, and author of Ocean Outbreak: Confronting the Rising Tide of Marine Disease.
"The author makes an eloquent plea for marine biodiversity
"Harvell’s encounters with rarer creatures of the deep are as exciting for the reader as they were for her, but the takeaway from A Sea of Glass is an SOS call for a change in human behavior."
"Stunning photos . . . contextualize the dramatic taxonomic and ecological shifts in ocean life over the past 150 years."
"Harvell seems to channel the devotion that motivated the Blaschkas."
"A wonderful example of the intertwining of science and art where each expression of the wonders of the human mind sparks another."
*The Explorers Journal*
"Curator and marine ecologist Harvell recounts her quest to find the living versions of the creatures and the scientific insights the 150-year-old glass replicas still provide." - The Best "Art Meets Science" Books of 2016
"Both the Blaschka collection and Harvell's work certainly stand the test of time as a testimony to the beauty and magnificence of the oceans' majesty and wonder."
"Beautifully written, multifaceted book . . . opens the doors of marine ecology to new audiences at a critical time."
