Colleagues in the LTER and marine science communities are morning the sudden loss of Dr. Susan Williams in an auto accident April 24, 2018, while on her way to teach. A founding investigator of the Mo’orea Coral Reef LTER and past director of the Bodega Marine Laboratory, Dr. Williams was a distinguished ecologist, passionate mentor, and committed proponent of marine education and ocean conservation and she will be missed.
