Research-Based Online Learning Event (ROLE) Model Webinar Webinar Topic: Essential Eelgrass: Ecology of a Vital Resource in Maine's Coastal Waters
Thursday, March 8, 2012
As part of a collaborative partnership between Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory (MDIBL) and COSEE-OS, this webinar highlighted eelgrass
in Maine's coastal waters. Dr. Hilary Neckles (USGS) shares
with us her research on the ecology of eelgrass, its range, its services, its threats, and efforts to preserve it. Her concept map-based presentation
includes resources to learn more about eelgrass ecology and conservation, as well as links to educational programs at MDIBL.
The webinar has been split into five sections to allow easier access to the materials. Click on the images below to play the movies. All
movies are Quicktime format.
