Videos: Scientists Invasives across Maine: Curtis Bohlen, Casco Bay Estuary Partnership Curtis Bohlen, wetland ecologist and Director of the Casco Bay Estuary Partnership, talks about the plants and animals of concern in Maine's coastal, freshwater, and upland habitats. He impresses on the Vital Signs community the importance of tracking these species so we know what's new, what to worry about, how to intervene, and how to minimize impact. He awaits your observations. "We'll find them useful." 2009-11-10 gmri 0
Videos: Scientists Marine intertidal: Dr Larry Harris, University of New Hampshire Dr Larry Harris, professor at the University of New Hampshire, talks about some of the marine intertidal species of concern in Maine. These species include the Asian shore crab, European green crab, codium, and invasive tunicates. Many have moved into Maine, but are not yet found north of the Casco Bay area....or so we think. Listen to Larry, then go out and do some looking and reporting for yourself. 2009-11-09 vitalteach 0
Presentations afterschool biodiversity search After school kids in grades 5,6,7 and 8 do an inventory of the diversity in our school yard. Students used quadrats locate a random area. While photographing our designated area we came across a birch tree crawling with life! It was freezing out (30 degrees without the wind chill) but my kids were hot on the trail and quick with the shutter capturing the critters on the tree. Biodiversity was evident. 2009-11-05 mirving 0
