Fig. 2 Mean number of snakes counted on various days before and after Typhoon Morakot impacted Lanyu, Taiwan. All counts were made at two sites having normally high abundances of sea snakes, as reported in Lillywhite et al. (2008). The lowest count labeled “typhoon” is the mean of three counts conducted on 6 August, which is the evening preceding impact of the storm during 7–9 August. Vertical bars depict the full range of counts for each period

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, created to facilitate research to address fundamental questions in evolutionary science. He has conducted deep-sea research for 11 years and published over 40 papers in the area. He has participated in dozens of expeditions taking him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses mainly on marine systems and particularly the biology of body size, biodiversity, and energy flow. He focuses often on deep-sea systems as a natural test of the consequences of energy limitation on biological systems. He is the author and chief editor of Deep-Sea News, a popular deep-sea themed blog, rated the number one ocean blog on the web and winner of numerous awards. Craig’s popular writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.
