Stipagrostis grasses use their leaves to channel fog down to their roots, Lepidochora beetles build trenches to collect fog water, reptiles of all types drink water off their bodies, and the iconic fog basking beetle (Onymacris unguicularis) can drink up to 40% of its body weight in water during a single fog event.  From the Skeleton Coast down to the Namib Sand Sea, coastal fog brings in vital water that supports these organisms in what is otherwise a tremendously dry landscape.  But a research team working at Gobabeb found that fog isn’t just bringing it water, it’s also carrying something else: living organisms.
