Introduction to Bryophytes and Lichens

Introduction to Bryophytes and Lichens 

May 26 – June 1, 2019

T

his introductory level seminar is designed primarily for people involved in natural history inventory work and interpretation, as well as for teachers or anyone whose appreciation of the outdoors has ever excited their curiosity about these unique organisms.  The basic structure, life histories, and ecology of bryophytes and lichens will be covered in formal lectures and discussions.  Field trips to a variety of habitats will introduce these organisms in their natural settings where students will be taught to recognize major taxa, describe their macro- and microhabitat preferences, and learn basic collection techniques.  Lab work will focus on the identification of representative taxa selected by the instructor and the identification and curation of student collections.  The goal of the seminar is to provide participants with the confidence, basic knowledge, and skills to pursue further study of these groups on their own. No prior experience in identifying bryophytes or lichens is assumed, although familiarity with basic microscope technique would be most helpful.

Dr. Fred Olday (folday@gmail.com) has previously taught courses in botany, chemistry, and soils at University of Massachusetts Lowell and at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine. Following his retirement, he has returned to College of the Atlantic where he presently teaches courses in bryophyte and lichen biology. He spends as much time in the outdoors as possible where he divides his time between gardening, hiking, and canoeing.

Lamprey Ecology Course

05-29-2019 8:00 am

The goals of this course are to raise awareness of native lamprey species, and assist participants in learning how to incorporate lamprey needs and conservation into permitting, in-water work activities, and restoration projects. This course uses classroom presentations and field work to provide participants with knowledge of the ecology, habitat needs, cultural significance, and conservation of lamprey species in the Pacific Northwest, and enable them to survey, salvage and identify lamprey species. Participants will receive handouts and resources to assist with lamprey identification and available conservation resources. This course will broaden participants’ understanding of an important, native, anadromous fish and their kin, and how to conserve these often over-looked fish species. The life history and habitat needs of lampreys will be described, along with their important roles in stream ecology, and aquatic and terrestrial food webs. Current distribution, status, and conservation needs will be discussed, as well as guidelines for best management practices, aquatic restoration design, sampling techniques, and permit requirements. The classroom part of the workshop will consist of interactive presentations, videos, and discussion. The second day is dedicated to field sampling to collect and identify larval lamprey, and learn valuable salvage techniques. Field activities will including use of salvage equipment and proper field techniques during a day in the field. Information collected in the field will be used to inform publicly-available distribution maps and future needs of lamprey at the sampled sites.
