>Hi Walter!  One of the most exciting things about doing science is that
your work is used by many other people for their own research.  My own
research is on seabirds that live in the Arctic, and I am helped in this
work by many other people, some from the US, some from France, Russia,
Canada, and other countries.  Our work has helped other scientists
understand how seabirds are affected by changes in the environment and by
the impact of overfishing and pollution.  The most recent result of some of
my research has been that Dr Marie Sutherlin and I have discovered a new
species of cormorant that lives in the Bering Sea.  Discovering a new
species of bird is very exciting, and we are researching what its ecology
is, and how it lives in the extreme Arctic environment.
