Research reports Hairy cat ear Hairy cat ear or Hypichaeris radicata I went out side looking to see if we could identify all the species on campus. Our main reason to go out side was to find out all the plant and trees on campus. We went outside and looked to see if we could see anything that might not have been already identified in the other classes. We took pictures and measured the plant or tree that we found. We looked to see if there were any insects eating it and then we identified it when we got back inside. I found mine on the side of the road in a grassy area near the Tree line. 2013-11-06 63jp52 0
Blog entries, Species Cards, Journal articles White Clover 34.8968 N and 42.0978 W in a forest like area with trees, next to a swamp on MMS school grounds. I am happy I found this plant because it's not invasive. I found it hard to find the scientific name for it. I am surprised to see that this plant stands alone, and no other White Clovers were near it. My sampling method was looking around for it. I am looking for White Clover ( Trifolium repens). I found this plant near my study site. The plant was four inches long, and the clover top was 1.6 centimeters wide. 2013-11-05 53cp35 0
Blog entries, Species Cards, Journal articles, Research reports Witch hazel On the campus of our school i think i found witch hazel but i need some help finding out what itt is it but i don't know so if you can please check out this below. On Tuesday October, 15 2013 we went outside and started looking for a new kind of plant on the massabesic campus. Our mission was to find a plant that had not been found before on the campus.I think I found some witch hazel but it's a little short in size but all the other dimensions are correct. The plant has made a great impact on the area around it and most of the plants have died out. 2013-11-05 53dr37 6
Research reports Wild Strawberry Latitude: N 43.58110 Longitude: W 070.70390 Habitat: In a developed area Field Notes: How many plants are on the Massabesic Middle School campus? The mission today was all about finding new plants on the Massabesic Middle School campus. This is has been an ongoing mission of Mr. Parent's seventh grade science classes and is being worked on all the time. We want to know how many species (plants and animals alike) are on our grounds, and the way that we have chosen to do this is by slowly identifying the animals and plants that we find while searching outside. 2013-11-05 73sn70 1
Research reports Japanese Knotweed Research The Japanese Knotweed we observed looked like bamboo with purple specks. They have a hollow stem with heart shaped leaves, visible joints and the plant is roughly three hundred centimeters tall. The width of the plant is about two and a half centimeters and the length is the same. The plant also has an alternating leaf pattern 2013-10-30 Phan-C-Phlamingoes 1
Videos: How-to, Videos: Species Fallopia Japonica, How To Make a Quadrat & Accessorize a Clipboard Part 1 of a scientific study of the invasive species, Fallopia japonica, commonly known as Japanese knotweed, or false bamboo. This non-native species of Maine was introduced in the 1800s along river banks to cut down erosion. This particular patch has been spreading from yard to yard over the last 17+ years, according to my nextdoor neighbor. This video includes an introduction to the species and a couple How-to spots on making a sampling quadrat and accessorizing a clipboard. 2013-09-30 chapmog 2

Research reports Bioassessment Data Sheet -- Robinson Woods II Here is the Bioassessment Data Sheet from our GMRI Intern Event at Robinson Woods II this afternoon. We went and looked in the stream by the "waterfall" (quite a small waterfall, so I'm not sure if I can even call it that). There was, overall, a lack of diversity, which is not a good sign, but we did find a lot of caddisflies and caddisfly cases (and that's a good thing!). The trip was a lot of fun, and if anybody else goes to Robinson Woods II, please go and collect some data in the stream, so we can see how it is changing over time! 2013-07-16 Mainer95 0
