This I Believe Rhode Island: Salt Marshes

Have you noticed how easy it is to overlook the profound importance of nature's subtle features?  For example, how teeny lady bugs have a major impact on crop production in agriculture.  Or how common tree leaves enable light and carbon dioxide to be absorbed from the environment for photosynthesis.  It sure does help to slow things down and notice how much nature's less obvious forms do for us in our daily lives.  And that's what we hear from Elena Suglia.

Born and raised in North Kingstown, RI, Elena Suglia is studying biology at Brown University and is interested in becoming a marine ecology researcher and science communicator.  Elena is an active rugby player, blogger, poet, and pianist.
