Foraminifera Research (Image 13) A sea star in a touch tank in the Albert P. Crary Science and Engineering Center contains some of the creatures found in McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. The vital organs of the creature are in its many legs; it effectively has no body. Biologists studying marine life in Antarctic waters have several large aquarium tanks in the center. The sea star is being held by Sam Bowser, a professor of biomedical sciences at the University of Albany's School of Public Health and a scientist at the New York State Department of Health's Wadsworth Center, who is researching single-celled creatures called Foraminifera. McMurdo is the logistics hub for National Science Foundation operations on the ice. (Date of Image: Dec. 2006) [Image 13 of 13 related images. Back to Image 1.]
