Summer 2009

Our summer 2009 issue features some of our area’s lesser-known habitats and creatures. From the vantage points of kite-mounted cameras and field microscopes, two researchers study and record beautiful images of the diversity of life in a ditch at the South Bay salt ponds. In this issue we also discover by kayak the less-visited middle reach of the Russian River and learn some of the secrets of bats, tarweeds, and the tiny gall wasps that inhabit the ecosystem created by an oak tree.
