Easy, breezy, beautiful…cover-snail

The beautiful coffee-bean snail (Melampus bidentatus), made the cover of this month’s issue of Ecology and Evolution! This fantastic photo was taken by my advisor Dr. David Johnson at our field site in Plum Island, Massuchusetts. Our recent paper, published in this issue, highlights how coffee-bean snails will respond to a changing marsh in the face of rising seas. While their responses may not be easy nor breezy, they sure are beautiful creatures. We are so excited our snail was chosen as this month’s covergirl cover-snail!
