"Sea grapes" sound like something Poseidon would snack on, not a killer algae. Yet Caulerpa racemosa var. cylindracea
poses a serious threat to marine life. Spread in the bilge water of boats, this fast-growing alga is quick to take root, squeezing out native species. But there is one spot in the Mediterranean where Caulerpa
hasn't yet taken over, and biologists like Ruiz Fernández are trying to discover why.
