Spartina Salt Marshes West Meadow Creek in Winter, North Shore of Long Island NY Spartina salt marshes are broad nearly level meadows dominated by several species of grasses that are tolerant of salt and anoxic sediment. Broad meadows are interspersed with creeks that are biologically rich, owing to the rich supply of organic matter and the provision of protected habitats for many species.

But have you ever really looked at what's in your local area? And can you identify what you see? Biodiversity Snapshots will help you to learn more about the animals around us every day by combining mobile technology and science. Tidal Wetlands Skip to main navigation The final Tidal Wetlands Guidance document for installing catwalks and docks is listed in the right column of this page. A typical tidal wetland is the salt marsh which is found in the near shore areas all around Long Island, the lower Hudson River, and along the entire Atlantic coast of the United States. These areas are dominated by grasses and other marsh plants which are adapted to the rise and fall of the tide and the salty water it brings. The blades of marsh grass provide a hiding place for many juvenile fish and habitat for many other animals as well.
Frank Gregorio This channel is dedicated to providing teachers and students a powerful new resource to combat student apathy. Here, you will find dramatic, visually stunning video "trailers" in the natural sciences choreographed to powerful music, designed to motivate and inspire students at the beginning of a lesson to the wonders of Biology, Earth Science, Astronomy or Chemistry. Over 60 million students and teachers worldwide have seen these videos to date, and their comments highlight their exceptional value to education. I invite you to subscribe to my channel. Biology History The objects of our research will be the different forms and manifestations of life, the conditions and laws under which these phenomena occur, and the causes through which they have been effected. The science that concerns itself with these objects we will indicate by the name biology [Biologie] or the doctrine of life [Lebenslehre]. Although modern biology is a relatively recent development, sciences related to and included within it have been studied since ancient times. Natural philosophy was studied as early as the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, Egypt, the Indian subcontinent, and China. However, the origins of modern biology and its approach to the study of nature are most often traced back to ancient Greece. While the formal study of medicine dates back to Hippocrates (ca. 460 BC – ca. 370 BC), it was Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) who contributed most extensively to the development of biology.
Overview of The Biology Project Welcome to The Biology Project, an interactive online resource for learning biology developed at The University of Arizona. The Biology Project is fun, richly illustrated, and tested on 1000s of students. It has been designed for biology students at the college and high school level, but is useful for medical students, physicians, science writers, and all types of interested people. Teachers can assign problems sets for reviews before exams, or may want to assign an activity before students cover that topic in their laboratory. Computers are an excellent means of encouraging cooperative learning (especially in the one-computer classroom!)
Federal Lands of the United States Sample Map National parks, national wildlife refuges, military reservations, Federal prisons, and public-domain land are all examples of lands owned or administered by the Government of the United States. The Federal Government is responsible for managing and protecting these lands to preserve the resources of the United States, to conduct the business of the Government, and to provide recreational and other opportunities to the public. This map layer was compiled by the National Atlas of the United States®. The Federal Lands of the United States map layer shows those lands owned or administered by the Federal Government, including the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S.

Science Printables Biology Teaching Resources Welcome to the Teachers' Center at Explore Biology. Here you will find resources to help you teach biology at the high school level. Some of my Regents lectures are supported by Powerpoint presentations. Species Name Dune Formation: On virtually any barrier island, wind and sand combine to create sand dunes. Dunes play a vital role in protecting coastlines and property. They act as buffers against severe storms, protecting the lands beyond the dune from salt water intrusion, high wind and storm surges.
