species-celastrus-orbiculatus-was-found-metarzan-2014-07-25 metarzan Portland 2014-07-25 14:51:00 Oriental bittersweet Celastrus orbiculatus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/metarzan/image.jpg sites/default/files/metarzan/image_0.jpg GMRI post apocalyptic graveyard sites/default/files/species_photos/208.jpg sites/default/files/metarzan/image_2.jpg Leaves alternate, finely toothed, round to spade, highly variable, young leaves soft and smooth. Leaves were less than 13 cm sites/default/files/metarzan/image_1.jpg Older vines are woody and bumpy, young vines are green and soft. sites/default/files/metarzan/image_3.jpg Many with no flowers or berries. Some with green berries all along vine (not American bittersweet with berries only at tip). Berries were clustered and green. It is sunny today. There were seagulls nearby. Planes were flying overhead as a lone worker was jackhammering in the background. There are many plants around this site with many plants latching onto a fence and using it as a trellis. The plants and vines were using various nets, bike wheels and other structure to grown on.

species-carcinus-maenas-was-found-edarling-2014-07-24 edarling South Bristol, ME 2014-07-24 20:00:00 Green crab Carcinus maenas I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/gmri/face_in_photo_091112_7.jpg sites/default/files/edarling/img_2142_0.jpg Pemaquid Point sites/default/files/species_photos/107.jpg sites/default/files/edarling/14467265060_b4740f76b0_z.jpg The specimen had 5 marginal teeth and as such matched up with the description of the organism in the field guide. We were searching for several invasive tunicates (start tunicates, orange sheath tunicates, and didemnum), codium fragile (green fleece) and green crabs. We found several specimens from each of those groups. There was a marked absence of asian shore crabs.
species-ambystoma-maculatum-was-not-found-3sciencesisters-2014-07-23 3ScienceSisters Sebec 2014-07-23 19:27:00 Spotted salamander Ambystoma maculatum I think I did not find it Native sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/1013036_10201557080947544_965120592_n.jpg sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/643927_10201757225551034_595621614_n.jpg North Rd sites/default/files/species_photos/spotted_body.jpg sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140722_162158.jpg When we took these pictures we were sure it was a salamander. He had the right shape and he even had spots on his back just like a spotted salamander. He wasn't like a salamander though because his body was more tannish brown with yellowish spots that were rimmed in black. He was very pretty and unique looking. When we looked up information about him later online we discovered that he is an Eastern Newt in the eft stage. During this stage Eastern Newts (who live in water as adults and larva) the newts come onto land and move around to different areas. They can live on land for 1-3 years before they go back to the water as adults to mate again. We thought this was really interesting. That is mom's hand in the picture (we did NOT want to touch this thing) so you can see he is pretty small. sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140722_162211.jpg The Eastern Newt Eft also had eyes that were different from spotted salamanders. Spotted salamanders have dark eyes and this eft had a dark slit like pupil in the center with yellow stripes above and below. This picture almost shows the eyes but he was very hard to photograph, he didn't want to sit still. His skin was also pretty dry, we were worried he was a sick salamander because his skin wasn't really wet like the other ones we've found at our house. sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140722_162253_1.jpg The coolest part of our eft was his belly. His belly was bright orange with dark spots on it. Mom explained that sometimes animals who are really brightly colored can be poisonous and the bright colors are a way for the animal to say "hey don't eat me I'll make you sick or I'll taste really bad". When we looked up information about Eastern Newts we were surprised to discover that they are actually toxic to animals that eat them. Spotted salamanders do not have brightly colored bellies like this. We were helping mom clean up and we moved a pot. Under the pot we found this little guy. We were not sure what he was so we had mom take a few pictures and then that night after supper mom and dad helped us look up on the internet what our mystery animal was. We learned some really cool information about Eastern Newts and their life cycle. These little guys can live for 12-15 years! And they love to things like mosquito larva when they are adults. When they are efts they eat all kinds of bugs and other small invertebrates (that means no backbone) that they find on the forest floor. We have a few vernal pools in our yard and in the woods around our house so we wonder if we look carefully when they are full if we will find the adult Eastern Newts? Please include this in the summer 2014 challenge.
species-hemigrapsus-sanguineus-was-found-kbiajrscientists-2014-07-22 KBIAJrScientists Kennebunk 2014-07-22 18:17:00 Asian shore crab Hemigrapsus sanguineus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1329.jpg sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1329_1.jpg KBIA Cove- Lobster Tidepool sites/default/files/species_photos/106.jpg sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1334.jpg We could tell the crab we found was an asian shore crab because of the distinct white-brown stripes and that the shape of the shell was square. We found two asian shore crabs on the trip. We were looking for twenty minutes. We found 35 different colonies of Orange Sheath Tunicate in approximately 1000 sq. feet. We found most of the tunicate on rocks rather than on the floor of the tidepool we were looking in. The color of the tunicate varied from bright orange to deep red.
species-fucus-vesiculosus-was-found-kbiajrscientists-2014-07-22 KBIAJrScientists Kennebunk 2014-07-22 18:17:00 Bladder wrack Fucus vesiculosus I think I found it Native sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1329.jpg sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1256.jpg KBIA Cove- Lobster Tidepool sites/default/files/species_photos/601.jpg sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1335.jpg We found ten bunches of bladder wrack after we walked 300 ft. We could tell it was bladder wrack because of the distinct mid rib on it and the two bulbs at the end. Most of the bladder wrack we found was randomly attached to rocks on a mudflat. We found 35 different colonies of Orange Sheath Tunicate in approximately 1000 sq. feet. We found most of the tunicate on rocks rather than on the floor of the tidepool we were looking in. The color of the tunicate varied from bright orange to deep red.

Also, the tunicate we found was 2 mm think, matching the description of it. sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/img_1328.jpg The tunicate we found came in colors from vibrant orange to deep red, which are the usual colors of orange sheath tunicate. We found 35 different colonies of Orange Sheath Tunicate in approximately 1000 sq. feet. We found most of the tunicate on rocks rather than on the floor of the tidepool we were looking in. The color of the tunicate varied from bright orange to deep red.
species-lupinus-polyphyllus-was-not-found-syeiracsc2014-2014-07-20 Syeira_csc2014 Limerick 2014-07-20 22:58:00 Lupine Lupinus polyphyllus I think I did not find it Invasive sites/default/files/syeira_csc2014/1405897351778.jpg sites/default/files/syeira_csc2014/1405900306562.jpg backyard sites/default/files/species_photos/213.jpg sites/default/files/syeira_csc2014/1405900362817.jpg While the leaves of this plant are lance shaped and smooth, they are missing an important factor that Lupine leaves have. This plant's leaves are arranged in a cpumpound pinnate formation and are opposite, instead of alternate plus they also have vines that wrap around anything nearby it. sites/default/files/syeira_csc2014/1405900562587.jpg This plant's flowers are clustered together unlike that of lupine. True, they do grow upwards and are purple petal pods but they are much closer together. sites/default/files/syeira_csc2014/1405900603778.jpg The stem of this plant is like that of Lupine. It branches off, it's hollow, but it is deeply green except for the redness at the base. This is a little different but not by much. Today I was outside in the late afternoon and discovered many strange (but pretty) purple flowering plants. They were clustered around my garden and were weaving and wrapping themselves around my blueberry bushes. They have smooth, opposite leaves in a coumpound pinnate pattern. all over the stem. The stem is green and hollow when you break it, branching off from the main stem. Purple flowers are found at the top of it, and are growing upwards, with the flower petals pointing down. They are draped over one another and are made of more than two petals per pod. I walked around the neighborhood a bit and discovered it growing next to the road, in a ditch and on the edge of the woods. It's a very sturdy plant but I'm not sure what plant it is.
species-solanum-dulcamara-was-found-3sciencesisters-2014-07-18 3ScienceSisters Bar Harbor 2014-07-18 23:50:00 bittersweet nightshade Solanum dulcamara I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140718_193031.jpg sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140718_192611.jpg Bar Harbor Shore Path sites/default/files/species_photos/bittersweet_nightshade_berries_pa180041.jpg sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140718_192526.jpg One of the first things we noticed about this plant was the flowers. The flowers were purple with a large yellow cone in the center and the flowers were all clustered together in bunches. The flowers were almost star shaped. We knew it was not a violet because the petals hung down on the plant we were looking at while violet petals face upwards. This was our first clue that we could be looking at Bittersweet Nightshade. It was mid July so the time frame for Bittersweet Nightshade to be flowering is correct as well. sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140718_192543.jpg The berries were small and egg shaped, looking a lot like un-ripe tomatoes. They were too small to be tomatoes and there were too many of them all clumped together to be tomatoes. We did not find any ripe berries so we are not sure if they would be red when ripe but the shape is right for Bittersweet Nightshade. Bird really like the ripe berries and each little berry can have as many as 30 seeds in them. It is bad that birds like them so much because it makes it really easy for this plant to spread when birds eat the berries and then poop them out somewhere new. sites/default/files/3sciencesisters/20140718_192601.jpg This picture isn't very good but it shows the vines and if you look closely you can see the leaves as well. The leaves were dark green and smooth with wavy edges. The plant was a vine that was growing on another bush (which we think was another invasive species but we had to move on so we didn't do another observation). The youngest of us is standing in front of the bush so you can see it is really pretty tall and the vine covers a lot of the bush. We took a walk on the Shore Path in Bar Harbor. As we walking near the part of the path that borders private backyards we noticed what we thought was an invasive species. Our mom got out her phone and we looked up some information about it using vital signs, we figured out that it was an invasive species so then our mom used her phone to take pictures so that when we got back from camping we could post here.

There were 109 of them. We collected them in the white bucket. sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/week_4-4.jpg Most of the Sea Potatoes we found were dried up. This was probably because they had washed up a while ago. Some of them were still wet though. sites/default/files/kbiajrscientists/photo_2_0.jpg This is a close up of the sea potatoes that we find at the cove. There are many more sea potatoes than last year.

We found several specimens of each organism. There was a marked absence of Asian Shore Crabs in the intertidal zone.
species-botrylloides-violaceus-was-found-smonahan-2014-07-13 smonahan Bristol 2014-07-13 20:00:00 Orange sheath tunicate Botrylloides violaceus I think I found it Invasive sites/default/files/gmri/face_in_photo_091112_6.jpg sites/default/files/smonahan/img_2142.jpg Pemaquid Point sites/default/files/species_photos/110.jpg sites/default/files/smonahan/img_2103.jpg Orange colony of Tunicates. It matched the field guide and the invasive species sheet. Windy day and the water was cold. The pool was rocky but a few spots were sandy. The Tide pool was about 40 by 100 meters. and was about half way between the high tide line and low tide line.

Also, the sample was found in the subtidal zone off of the dock, providing further evidence of our finding. We discovered copious amounts of colonies of Orange Sheath Tunicate as we searched under the docks at Port Harbor Marin. A large concentration of the tunicates was found on a coil of tubing and chains located in the water. These specific tunicates were found among beds of mussels along with other tunicate species. They were often also found attached to other organisms such as mussels.

You can see here that there are compound pinnate leaves and curved thorns. So we know it's a rose. sites/default/files/christinev/stipules.jpg You can see the fringed stipules that help us tell multiflora rose apart from other roses. We were mainly looking along the fence and the area near the fence not the full backyard. We were looking for multiflora rose, oriental bittersweet, and bittersweet nightshade specifically. It was hot and sunny, with few clouds. The area was an open field, with some containers/shed/storage things and a fence, and there were many other plants.

We had a hard time finding the clusters of flowers or berries that would help us tell if this was Oriental bittersweet or American bittersweet. We did find this section with lots of green berries, not yet ripe. Because of the arrangement along the stem we think this is Oriental bittersweet. sites/default/files/christinev/img_0753.jpg The leaves were glossy with long pointed tips. sites/default/files/christinev/img_3839.jpg You can see here that the leaves were growing along a vine.
