Lama Mark Webber (Lama Karma Tenpa Lekshe Yongdu) has been studying and teaching Buddha Dharma (the teachings of Liberation through the traditions of Buddhism) for thirty-eight years. From a personal injunction by Namgyal Rinpoche to “know the minds of all sentient beings”, this work has since coincided with a long term study of the vast and unseen life forms of this planet.

Beginning in 2001 with a Swift portable field microscope, Lama Mark has traveled with microscopes, a digital camera and laptop, to share his interest and knowledge in microscopic life through courses and via the internet. In order to gain a deeper appreciation of biological principles found in most life, Lama Mark's research has recently focused on the ecology, life cycle, speciation and stress of the coastal marine diatom Ditylum. Presently, his light microscopic and electron microscopic images are stored and publicly accessible on the University of British Columbia’s Biomedia Image and Movie Database, complete with taxonomic and ecological descriptions, and are now being made available on iNaturalist.
