It Must Be Something in the Water! The Ecology of Animals in Maine's Aquatic Systems

This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.

The world around us is dominated by water and these ecosystems harbor some of the most fascinating creatures. Whether a diminutive black fly or a huge sturgeon, organisms have evolved to exploit diverse aquatic habitats in our "back yard".
We will explore the watery world through the eyes of an extraordinary group of scientists with expertise in the behavior and ecology of fish, invertebrates, and humans. Our goal is to have students gain a new perspective about animal life in stream, lake, river, and ocean environments.
This six-week class is held at UMaine-Orono at the Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions in the Norman Smith Hall.
