Fred+Summer+blogMy interests were and are in music and in science.  Having decided that I was not good enough to be a musician, I majored in science.  I have always been interested in “what makes critters tick, and why they live where they do and not somewhere else.”  My research has often been directed toward metabolic relationships between parasites and their hosts.

I am writing a comparative physiology book, a few pamphlets in support of voluntary courses I teach at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center, and am expanding and revising the 2nd Edition of a book on Water.  I also have a few past, but cogent research articles which need publishing.

I plan to continue a study of nitrogen balance and other minerals in tide pools.  I also plan to follow the growth and metabolic activities within inter-tidal parasitized invertebrates.
