Submersed and Floating Aquatic Plants

Submersed and Floating Aquatic Plants

August 4 – August 10, 2019

This seminar will focus on the identification, biology, reproduction, structure, invasiveness, and ecology of submersed and floating aquatic flowering plants, especially those of the Potamogetonaceae.   The Potamogetonaceae of North America and New England represents one of the largest truly aquatic plant families.   New England and northeastern North America have the greatest number and diversity of species in the family.  This seminar will be especially valuable to consulting botanists, state heritage employees, and those interested in lake monitoring. Field trips will be taken to lakes, ponds, and streams in eastern and northern Maine to collect and observe species found in the pristine waters of the easternmost counties in the US. Discussions, lectures, and lab work will supplement field work. Invasive aquatic plants of the northeast will be discussed in detail and methods of their control will be reviewed. While in the field submersed and floating-leaved species will be reviewed.  Herbarium and live material will be available for study.

 

Dr. C. Barre Hellquist (c.barre.hellquist@mcla.mass.edu) is professor emeritus of biology at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and is co-author of the Aquatic Plants of New England series and the two volume Aquatic and Wetland Plants of Northeastern North America. He has co-authored portions of the Flora of North America (Nuphar and Alismatidae), the Alismatidae for the Flora of China, the Jepson Manual of California, and the aquatics for the flora of the San Juan River Basin (four corners region of western U.S.). Presently he is studying the systematics of Australian Nymphaea and conducting field studies with his son, Dr. C. Eric Hellquist on the aquatic flora of Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. He has taught courses on aquatic plants at the University of Michigan and University of Oklahoma Biological Stations and lectures on the rare aquatic plants and invasive aquatics of the northeast.

Dr. C. Eric Hellquist (eric.hellquist@oswego.edu) is an Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the State University of New York at Oswego.  He is an ecologist whose research interests involve plant interactions in aquatic and wetland ecosystems.  He has worked in wetlands throughout the United States in New England, New York, northern Michigan, the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, and Puget Sound.  His current research is focused on the diversity and ecology of the aquatic vascular flora of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.  Another focal project involves cattail invasions of peatland habitats in central New York.  He has taught Field Botany at the University of Michigan Biological Station and teaches several ecology courses at SUNY Oswego.

EPT (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, Trichoptera) Taxonomy and Ecology

EPT (Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, Trichoptera) Taxonomy and Ecology

August 11 – August 17, 2019

This seminar will focus on the genus level taxonomy of the Ephemeroptera, Plecoptera, and Trichoptera  and is offered for anyone involved in aquatic biomonitoring or natural history survey programs. Intensive laboratory study of each group combined with field work in diverse aquatic habitats will  refine taxonomic skills to improve participants reliability of family and genus level determinations as well as sampling proficiency. Reference specimens will be provided for study, but participants are strongly encouraged to bring specimens from their own region for study. Field trips to sample for nymphs/larvae and adults will be structured to provide an introduction to a variety of important macro and microhabitats. Information on the biology and ecology of families and genera of EPT taxa relevant to biomonitoring programs will also bePresented. A practical exam will be available at the end of the seminar for those who want an assessment of their skills. The SFS EPT taxonomic certification exam is possible, but only by making prior arrangements with the instructor and will involve a separate registration with the SFS certification coordinator (SFS EPT taxonomic certification exam is a digital exam and will require you to supply your own laptop for the test). 

Dr. Steven K. Burian (burians1@southernct.edu) is professor of aquatic biology at Southern Connecticut State University. He is a specialist on the taxonomy and systematics of Nearctic Ephemeroptera with a particular interest in the fauna of New England, Atlantic Canada, and the lower Arctic of Canada. His most active research programs involve studies of taxonomy of Siphlonurus, eastern species of Rhithrogena, Pseudocloeon, and Paraleptohlebia, as well as the distribution and species richness patterns of mayflies of far northern and eastern North America.
