Missouri’s Own Panel

Juli Berwald, Spineless: The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone

Juli Berwald’s journey into the world of jellyfish is a personal one. Over a decade ago she left the sea and her scientific career behind to raise a family in landlocked Austin, Texas. Increasingly dire headlines drew her back to jellies, as unprecedented jellyfish blooms toppled ecosystems and collapsed the world’s most productive fisheries. What was unclear was whether these incidents were symptoms of a changing planet or part of a natural cycle.

Berwald’s desire to understand jellyfish takes her on a scientific odyssey. Gracefully blending personal memoir with crystal-clear distillations of science, Spineless reveals that jellyfish are a bellwether for the damage we’re inflicting on the climate and the oceans and a call to realize our collective responsibility for the planet we share.

Dr. Richard Lazaroff, Some Assembly Required

The parenting journey can be a life-changing experience, and when going somewhere new, guidelines are often helpful. In Some Assembly Required, author Dr. Richard Lazaroff offers a pediatrician’s advice for parents attempting to raise successful and emotionally healthy children by making intentional choices starting in infancy and continuing through adolescence. With a list of online and print resources included, Dr. Lazaroff shares his personal and professional experiences and lessons learned from his thirty-five years of work with humor, guidance, and wisdom about what often lies just beneath the everyday challenges of parenthood.

Jonathan Losos, Improbably Destinies: Fate, Chance, and the Future of Evolution

Jonathan Losos reveals what the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary biology can tell us about one of the greatest ongoing debates in science. He takes us around the globe to meet the researchers who are solving the deepest mysteries of life on Earth through their work in experimental evolutionary science.

Improbable Destinies will change the way we think and talk about evolution. Losos’s insights into natural selection and evolutionary change have far-reaching applications for protecting ecosystems, securing our food supply, and fighting off harmful viruses and bacteria. This compelling narrative offers a new understanding of ourselves and our role in the natural world and the cosmos.
