Book Excerpt


Shape-Shifting Cephalopods

Drew Harvell

For more than two decades, ecologist and evolutionary biologist Drew Harvell has curated Cornell University’s collection of 569 glass models of marine invertebrates, crafted in the 19th century by Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka. In 2011 she began exploring oceans and waterways to find each species represented in Cornell’s collection. In this excerpt from her book A Sea of Glass, Harvell describes her encounters with marvelously changeable cephalopods.
