Planning Hydrology Vegetation and Soils for Constructed Wetlands

06-25-2019 - 06-28-2019
Planning Hydrology Vegetation and Soils for Constructed Wetlands

This course covers critical elements for construction and restoration of wetlands. These principles are requisite for mitigation projects and for mitigation banks regardless of size. The elements covered include establishing goals, site selection, defining and quantifying hydrology, preparing vegetation plans, and establishing a proper soil substrate. Please note: as with most WTI courses, this course has broad applicability throughout the United States.

Northeastern Plants of the Wetland Boundary

06-28-2019 - 11-30-2019
Northeastern Plants of the Wetland Boundary

Northeastern plants of the wetland boundary is 24-contact hour course designed to give participants the knowledge and skills necessary to identify many commonly encountered plants on either side of the wetland boundary in the Northeastern United States (and adjoining Canada). The course focuses on basic plant identification, terminology, keying, and field characters. A self-directed field component provides participants the opportunity to submit digital photographs of plants they have identified for verification and to interact with experts and peers on the course discussion forum. Lecture notes are available for download in full color in either two or three images per page. Participants are responsible for printing your own lectures notes.

This course is best suited for beginner to moderate skill levels and are ideal to prepare for one of our Basic Wetland Delineation courses.

Grasses: Identification and Ecology

Grasses: Identification and Ecology

July 7–13, 2019

The information presented in this course will include key distinguishing features for each of 10 tribes and upwards of 60 or so common and representative genera within those tribes.  Dried plant material and dissecting microscope exhibits will be used to teach key identification features for each taxon.  The first day will be spent in lecture and lab teaching necessary background material and identification concepts.  On days 2 through 4 each morning will begin with a lecture on the taxa to be covered that day followed by examination of specimens.  After lunch a field trip will be taken to develop field recognition skills followed by keying collected specimens back in the lab.  The final day will be spent summarizing the course material, answering questions, and in the field, assisting participants in practical application.

 

Dennis Magee (hmagee48@gmail.com) is the author or principal author of Freshwater Wetlands: A Guide to Common Indicator Plants of the Northeast, Flora of the Northeast (First and Second Editions), and Grasses of the Northeast. He has taught survey courses on Graminoides for the past 30 years throughout the Northeast.

Marine Benthic Invertebrates

Marine Benthic Invertebrates

July 7 – July 13, 2019

The diverse marine habitats of downeast Maine hold a rich array of boreal benthic invertebrates that contribute to the high productivity of the region. This seminar provides an introduction to the natural history and ecology of the macroinvertebrates. Primary topics are benthic communities and habitats, taxonomy, biogeography, ecological health, and ecosystem services.  Field trips to intertidal mudflats and by small boat to subtidal soft-bottom habitats provide samples for identification and quantification. Labs provide opportunities to key out common benthic invertebrates. Computer software used to analyze community data is introduced, using a nearshore Gulf of Maine data set. This seminar is intended for marine researchers, environmental consultants, conservation biologists, teachers, natural historians, and others curious about what lives on the bottom and how these communities contribute to marine ecosystems.

Niels-Viggo Hobbs (nvshobbs@uri.edu) is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Environmental Protection Agency and a lecturer at the University of Rhode Island. His research focuses on invasive marine invertebrates, the ecology of marine crustaceans, and the effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia on coastal invertebrates. 

Stephen Hale (stephenshale@gmail.com) is a marine benthic ecologist retired from the Atlantic Ecology Division laboratory of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Narragansett, Rhode Island. His interests include marine invertebrate biodiversity, ecosystem services, and historical ecology.
