About  the  Web  Site

The purpose of this web site is to educate people about sea-beans...
their identification, their source, their travels, their variety, their beauty,
and the plants that they produce.

This web site contains images and information about sea-beans (drift seeds) commonly found on the beaches of the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. The primary source for these sea-beans is the Atlantic side of South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.

This site contains images and information to help people identify sea-beans from any locality in the world, but the expertise available and typical visitor to this site is for help with tropical Western Atlantic and Caribbean species.

Some History: This web site was started by Cathie Katz on August 2, 1998. In the summer of 1999, I volunteered to scan past newsletters and add them to her site. At the 1999 Sea-Bean Symposium I met Cathie and she handed over website maintenance to me. Cathie passed away on Thanksgiving Day in 2001; soon afterward, I was informed that she legally left the website to me in her will.
