Lisa Becking talks about the work she (and some MAE students!) have been doing in Indonesia on these unique lakes filled with jellyfish.

Lisa Becking is interested in how jellyfish populations in lakes are genetically connected to each other and to the outside source populations. She also focusses on the conservational aspect of jellyfish lakes: how can we best protect them from increasing tourism? How are jellyfish abundance and health affected by tourism? And how do abundances fluctuate naturally? Read more in the National Geographic article on these fascinating lakes by clicking the link below.
