Way Back When On the Reef

Along with David’s remembrances of his early life in marine biology, we have a video on one of David’s collaborators in this oyster study, Jeb Byers. Like all of the collaborators on the study, Jeb attended the University of North Carolina, where he overlapped with Jon Grabowski.  Alicia Brown was sent up to help Jeb’s […]

Yes We Did!

Dr. David Kimbro FSU Coastal & Marine Lab The following is the first of three or so videos on the big October oyster trip.  In this one, you get a long busy day in the field condensed into two minutes (it’s much less exhausting that way).  We’ll have videos in the next couple of weeks […]

Apalachicola Basin

WFSU content on the Apalachicola Basin: RiverTrek, oysters, tupelo honey and more. We’re still exploring the river and bay and the challenges they face.

Alligator Harbor

David and his crew raced around their four North Florida sites last October, in part to start a new experiment. This is what they did: They tore up small chunks of local reefs, located oyster spat on shells, cut the shell segments containing spat into similarly sized bits, and glued those bits onto tiles. Those […]

Cold and Wet: Field Research in the Winter

Rob Diaz de Villegas WFSU-TV I was driving to Stump Hole with my production assistant Kevin when we saw these waves crashing on the rocks on the beach side of Cape San Blas.  Like any good production people, we knew the only thing to do was to climb the rocks and get footage and stills […]

The Dirty Work

Tanya Rogers FSU Coastal & Marine Lab (Editor’s Note.  Although David refers to Randall’s participation on this study, her role was not elaborated upon in this video.  That will be a part of the next video, on David’s collaborators, as Randall is David’s Co-PI- or Primary Investigator) It’s been said that research techs are those […]
