Northeast Regional Migration Monitoring Network studying the major flyway in the gulf
Whose Woods?
Whose Woods?
Research is bridging differences between Maine forest landowners and outdoor recreationists.
Seeing the Light
Seeing the Light
Using specialized sensors, Emmanual Boss studies the effects of particles on the underwater light to understand what lies beneath. His research focuses on what marine optics can tell us about what’s in the ocean and how those particles — most no bigger than a few micrometers — impact processes in the water, as well as in the global system.
Global Worming
Global Worming
A worldwide database at UMaine compiles what we know about age-old and newly discovered microinvertebrates
Weed Warfare
Weed Warfare
Eric Gallandt, a UMaine associate professor of weed ecology and management, has made it his mission to help small-scale growers who plant diversified crops. He takes a systemic approach to weed management by focusing on the ways in which growers address the seed bank — the seeds at the soil surface and the seeds incorporated in the soil.
Coming Up Empty
Coming Up Empty
The effect of humans on the marine resources — from overfishing to policymaking — is undeniable, controversial and little-understood. And that’s where economic anthropologist James Acheson comes in.
Songbird shortcut
Songbird shortcut
Researchers believe they may have discovered a previously unknown, but potentially important flyway that songbirds are using as a shortcut across the Gulf of Maine during fall migration, according to wildlife biologists with the University of Maine and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge.

Maine’s lakeside communities are facing a variety of management issues. The variety in that challenges and the struggles being faced by these communities reflects the diversity of the communities themselves.
Denali Ice Feature
