Look for CBIOMES-flavored eye-candy in a new book celebrating the Simons Foundation’s first 25 years supporting discovery-driven science.
In 1994, the Simons Foundation, generous supporter of CBIOMES, was born. To commemorate its 25th anniversary, Foundation staff have published a book containing 35 articles seeking to exemplify “scientific and mathematical things they find beautiful; the mysteries they love; the science they’ve learned in 25 years; the contributions they’ve made in that time; and the problems they hope to solve by their 50th birthday.”
This visually stunning book, Commemorating 25 years of advancing the frontiers of research in mathematics and the basic sciences, revealing the depth and breadth of Simons Foundation activity, is available as a PDF
Special thanks to all the CBIOMES investigators who contributed imagery and provided text-guidance, especially Ginger Armbrust, Mohammad Ashkezari, Zoe Finkel, Christopher Follett, Jed Fuhrman, and Oliver Jahn as well as collaborating scientist Maike Sonnewald (MIT.)

The opacity indicates the total concentration of phytoplankton biomass: the darker the color, the less phytoplankton. Image Credit: Oliver Jahn, MIT (detail)
