Trichoptera of the Northeast

Trichoptera of the Northeast

July 14 – July 20, 2019

This seminar focuses on the natural history and taxonomy of caddisflies (Trichoptera) in northeastern North America, including systematics, ecology, and behavior of larvae and adults, with emphasis on those aspects important in ecological studies, biological monitoring of water quality, and sport fishing.  Insects will be collected from local habitats and resulting specimens will be identified in the laboratory. 

Dr. John C. Morse (jmorse@clemson.edu) is a Professor Emeritus of Entomology at Clemson University in South Carolina. Besides courses in insect systematics, insect larvae, and a variety of other topics, Prof. Morse has taught courses related to aquatic insects at Clemson University, at Highlands Biological Station in North Carolina, in several other states, and in 10 countries so far in Asia and Europe for more than 43 years. His research specialty is the identification, biology, and historical development of caddisflies (Trichoptera), which he has studied in many streams of the world since 1967. He and his students also investigate the identification, biology, and distribution of other aquatic insects, of stream ecology and conservation, and of the use of insect communities to monitor water pollution.

Dr. Paul B. Frandsen (paul_frandsen@byu.edu) is an Assistant Professor of Genetics, Genomics, and Biotechnology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. Paul’s research is focused on the systematics and biodiversity of Trichoptera with a special focus on their use of silk. He has conducted extensive field research in North America and countries such as Panama, Guyana, Russia, Mongolia, and Nepal.

Plant Identification for Wetland Delineators

07-16-2019 8:00 am - 07-19-2019 5:00 pm
Plant Identification for Wetland Delineators

A plant identification course designed for wetland delineators working in the Upper Midwest.

Through a combination of field site visits and classroom familiarization with the use of floristic keys, students will learn identification principles, descriptive vocabulary, and diagnostic characteristics of species frequently encountered by wetland delineators on the wetland-nonwetland interface of a wide variety of Upper Midwest habitats.

Plant lists are provided. 32 contact hours/ Instructor: Newling.

Basic Wetland Delineator Training

07-16-2019 8:30 am - 07-19-2019 5:30 am

This four-day course is designed to provide students with hands-on experience in the field applying the methods and getting critiqued by the instructor and their peers. Taught by regional experts in plant identification, hydric soil recognition, and wetland delineation, you will learn how to analyze vegetation patterns, recognize hydric soils and separate them from nonhydric soils –essential skills for wetland identification and boundary delineation.  Students will be introduced to the basic concepts and methods in lectures and through field exercises.  During the course, students will be spend approximately two days of time in the field learning how to determine the presence or absence of hydrophytic vegetation, hydric soils, and wetland hydrology indicators and to use these indicators to identify and delineate wetlands following federal methods.  The instructors will demonstrate sampling techniques and guide students through the steps in conducting wetland delineations.  Students will work in groups to identify wetlands and delineate their boundaries.  Their work will be evaluated by the instructors and their peers. 

 

Focusing on the use of the Corps Wetlands Delineation manual and the latest regional supplement, there will also be a discussion of key differences between this manual and state methods, where appropriate.  The fee includes all course materials – the Corps of Engineers manual; the regional supplement; Regional Wetland Plant List, and additional information relevant to making wetland determinations plus a hardbound copy of "Wetland Indicators" (Tiner, 1999) – a college textbook providing a comprehensive review of the science behind wetland delineation, various delineation methodologies, and aids to wetland identification.

 

  • This course is designed for students with some familiarity with plant id.
  • Meets the training requirements for SMC Certified Wetland Specialist.

  • Appropriate for required hours toward the Society of Wetland Scientist’s Professional Wetland Scientist certification program (www.sws.org).  

 

COURSE FEE:  $975.00 includes all course materials - textbook "Wetland Indicators" by R.W. Tiner (1999), 1987 Corps Wetlands Delineation Manual, Regional Plant List, Regional Supplement and various handouts. 

 

Instructors:  Michael Whited & Ralph Tiner

Ericaceae and Ericaceous Heaths of Maine

Ericaceae and Ericaceous Heaths of Maine

July 21–27, 2019

The focus of this seminar is on the plant family Ericaceae. Coastal Maine is particularly rich in ericaceous species with approximately 32 shrub and herb species placed in 17 genera. Ericaceae in the broad sense (incl. monotropoids, pyroloids, empetrids) are abundant in a broad range of coastal and inland habitats providing opportunities to study the taxonomic diversity in a phylogenetic context. Ecological components of the family, e.g., niche/habitat and fungal and pollinator associations will be considered for independent study. Field trips will target local plant community types with abundant ericad diversity, followed by guided identification of collections, supplemented by examination of species found in other parts of North America. Participants are encouraged to bring collections they have made in other geographic areas.

Paul Manos (pmanos@duke.edu) is a Professor of Biology at Duke University, Durham, NC. He has worked on the systematics of Northern Hemisphere woody plants with an emphasis on oaks, hickories, and walnuts. More recently, he has studied the biogeography of the eastern Northern American flora. He has extensive teaching experience in the southern Appalachians and a well-developed interest in the diversity and ecology of Ericaceae, and in the systematics of Vaccinium. https://biology.duke.edu/people/paul-s-manos
