Undersea Science

In the past, marine biology at STRI has received much less attention than terrestrial biology, in part because STRI needed equipment and skills to join underwater expeditions. This edition of Trópicos is the result of a concentrated effort to document the work of Smithsonian underwater scientists on the front lines. Thanks to the support of the Smithsonian Women’s Committee, STRI photographer and writer Sean Mattson and videographer and documentary filmmaker Ana Endara spent dozens of hours underwater with them in Panama’s diverse marine environments.
