Saving a Threatened Species
Nerodio is a play on the Latin name for Lake Erie Watersnakes, Nerodia sipedon insularum, and refers to an annual census of watersnakes on the Lake Erie islands. First started as part of the recovery program for the federally threatened snake in 2001, the researchers continue to collect data on the islands’ snake populations today.

Benthic Macroinvertebrates Workshop May 2021OHSU-CAST-1665
The instructor will be Dr. Brian Alford, Assistant Director of Stone Laboratory. Dr. Alford has worked with benthic macroinvertebrates for over 20 years as an aquatic research scientist. This virtual workshop will cover various methods that aquatic ecologists use to collect invertebrates from the bottom of streams and lakes. Topics will also include the importance of benthic macroinvertebrates for assessing biotic integrity of freshwater ecosystems, how people can protect and restore these communities, and how to identify them using microscopy or magnification lenses. Live and recorded videos will be used by the instructor to demonstrate field sampling and identification techniques. Identification will be taught to the order and family level. Selected live and preserved specimens from Lake Erie and its tributaries will be used to teach participants how to identify them to genus and species level. This workshop is intended to be an introduction to freshwater benthic macroinvertebrates, therefore it is assumed that participants will have little to no experience identifying these animals.
DURATION: ~ 2 hrs, 27 mins
