Saludos! This is the personal page of Benjamin Branoff, an ecology PhD student at the University of Puerto Rico-Río Piedras. I study the relationships between ecosystems and society, with a particular interest in coastal systems.
This site is a personal collection of things that are important to me: Science, education, adventure, and art. Feel free to explore and contact me using the information to the right. Enjoy!
“One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. An ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.”
