Research reports Does Cape Elizabeth Have a Healthy Marine Ecosystem? My project’s purpose is to determine whether or whether not Cape Elizabeth has a healthy marine ecosystem. I used Vital Signs to record and count data from inventories on the crab species and periwinkle species. I did this for each individual species so I could determine if the invasive species were dominating the native crab and periwinkles. My findings indicate that the green and Asian shore crab and common periwinkle (all invasive) have diminished the native crab and periwinkle population. 2015-05-22 CTLRedalgae 1
Research reports Does Heterosiphonia Japonica affect native seaweed species? Abstract: I: Does the invasive species, red algae really affect the native species meaning taking away sources the native species of seaweed needs to survive. M: I read through all the data in vital signs for heterosiphonia to see if as the invasive species grows the native seaweed dies. R:Statistics shown on graphs and tables on where heterosiphonia was found and the percent cover. For example in Fort Williams state park in Maine the percent cover was 28%. C: In some places the invasive japonica is killing of the native species of seaweed and their population is decreasing. 2015-05-20 ctloaktree1990 1
