Photo Essay


As part of our undergraduate program in the life sciences, students participate in a wide array of field trips to local and remote locations. These images were obtained during field trips to Everglades National Park, Florida; San Diego, California; and the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador. I have been intrigued by bird behavior. These profiles allude to their personality differences and the diversity and beauty of nature. It is my hope that these images also provoke emotional reactions in us.

Joshua Feingold, Ph.D., is an associate professor with a joint appointment at the college and NSU’s Oceanographic Center. He earned a B.S. in Biology and Philosophy at Trinity College, and then completed M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Marine Biology at the University of Miami’s Rosentstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. His research interests concern the distribution and abundance of free-living coral communities in the eastern tropical Pacific, and impacts associated with El Niño-Southern Oscillation on these and other coral communities. Photography is utilized in much of this work to document benthic cover and species interactions, and becomes a creative outlet when the science is completed.
