Planning Hydrology Vegetation and Soils for Constructed Wetlands

06-25-2019 - 06-28-2019
Planning Hydrology Vegetation and Soils for Constructed Wetlands

This course covers critical elements for construction and restoration of wetlands. These principles are requisite for mitigation projects and for mitigation banks regardless of size. The elements covered include establishing goals, site selection, defining and quantifying hydrology, preparing vegetation plans, and establishing a proper soil substrate. Please note: as with most WTI courses, this course has broad applicability throughout the United States.

Grasses: Identification and Ecology

Grasses: Identification and Ecology

July 7–13, 2019

The information presented in this course will include key distinguishing features for each of 10 tribes and upwards of 60 or so common and representative genera within those tribes.  Dried plant material and dissecting microscope exhibits will be used to teach key identification features for each taxon.  The first day will be spent in lecture and lab teaching necessary background material and identification concepts.  On days 2 through 4 each morning will begin with a lecture on the taxa to be covered that day followed by examination of specimens.  After lunch a field trip will be taken to develop field recognition skills followed by keying collected specimens back in the lab.  The final day will be spent summarizing the course material, answering questions, and in the field, assisting participants in practical application.

Marine Benthic Invertebrates

Marine Benthic Invertebrates

July 7 – July 13, 2019

The diverse marine habitats of downeast Maine hold a rich array of boreal benthic invertebrates that contribute to the high productivity of the region. This seminar provides an introduction to the natural history and ecology of the macroinvertebrates. Primary topics are benthic communities and habitats, taxonomy, biogeography, ecological health, and ecosystem services.  Field trips to intertidal mudflats and by small boat to subtidal soft-bottom habitats provide samples for identification and quantification. Labs provide opportunities to key out common benthic invertebrates. Computer software used to analyze community data is introduced, using a nearshore Gulf of Maine data set. This seminar is intended for marine researchers, environmental consultants, conservation biologists, teachers, natural historians, and others curious about what lives on the bottom and how these communities contribute to marine ecosystems.

Niels-Viggo Hobbs (nvshobbs@uri.edu) is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Environmental Protection Agency and a lecturer at the University of Rhode Island. His research focuses on invasive marine invertebrates, the ecology of marine crustaceans, and the effects of ocean acidification and hypoxia on coastal invertebrates. 

Stephen Hale (stephenshale@gmail.com) is a marine benthic ecologist retired from the Atlantic Ecology Division laboratory of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Narragansett, Rhode Island. His interests include marine invertebrate biodiversity, ecosystem services, and historical ecology.

Wetland Identification, Delineation, and Ecology

Wetland Identification, Delineation, and Ecology

July 14 – July 20, 2019

This intensive training is based in large part on the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Wetlands Delineation Manual (1987) and Regional Supplement:  Northcentral and Northeast Region (2012). The training addresses the requirements for basic delineation training as specified by the Corps of Engineers for its regulatory training course in wetland identification and delineation course. Classroom instruction will cover background information and methodologies. Topics will specifically include the science of hydric soils, hydrophytic vegetation, wetland hydrology, and the application of that science in the field. In the field, participants will apply the methods to collect data on the field indicators of wetland vegetation, hydrology, and soils used to determine the occurrence and location of wetland boundaries. Successful completion of this seminar will provide participants with a sound knowledge base and basic field experience for identifying wetlands, delineating their boundaries, and understanding how wetlands relate ecologically to the surrounding landscape.
