Marine scientist Fiorenza Micheli has spent more than a decade observing life in the world`s oceans - from the tropical shores of East Africa to the Mediterranean beaches of her native Italy. Yet few sights can match the spectacle she sees from the window of her new office at Stanford`s Hopkins Marine Station overlooking Monterey Bay. Every day, Micheli is greeted by a flotilla of harbor seals, sea otters and sea lions, while flocks of brown pelicans and kittiwakes soar overhead.
