Killdeer (Charadrius vociferus) nest in busy parking lot protect Found on golf courses or vacant gravell parking lots, this noisy plover is best known for its "broken wing" behavior. If a predator approaches, a nesting killdeer performs a conspicuous distraction display, dragging itself as if mortally wounded, often on one foot, its wings seemingly broken and its rusty tail fanned toward the intruder. This feigning of injury is effective in luring the predator away from the eggs or young, at which point the bird then "recovers" and flies off, calling loudly.

Oyster shells awaiting spat and oyster mesh bags At Drakes Bay Oyster Company near Point Reyes, CA, oysters grow either as singles or in clusters. The singles are grown as individuals from the larval stage. The single oysters are produced in the indoor hatchery located on-farm, and are then moved to the growing area in mesh bags to resist predation from bat rays. Clusters are created by setting many larvae on shells saved from the shucking and packing operation. aquaculture,shellfish,seeding,California

Adaptation to Climate Change Conceptual diagram illustrating preparations for the effects of climate change: Elevating and moving houses and utilities away from flood plain boundaries make them less vulnerable to storms and may lower flood insurance rates. Rather than building a concrete levy to protect property, consider a natural shoreline that offers the same benefit. diagram,climate change,global warming,sea level rise,flooding,adaptation,mitigation,protection,erosion

Acacia koa (Koa tree) Front view illustration of a Koa tree, endemic to the Hawaiian islands. There are actually two species of koa native to Hawaii. The large forest koa is well known around the world for the beautiful hard wood. Koa's smaller cousin, koai?a, that once grew in the lowlands of most of the main Hawaiian Islands, has an even harder wood that is much prized for its gnarled grain. symbol,vector,illustration,koa,tree,shrub,native,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Rosids,Fabales,Fabaceae,Acacia,Hawaii

Chenopodium oahuense (Aweoweo) Front view illustration of an Aweoweo, endemic to the Hawaiian islands. Native water and land birds (e.g., Nihoa finch), and seabirds use Aweoweo for food, nesting material or nesting sites. Early Hawaiians used the wood to form shark hooks (makau mano) fitted with bone points. Aweoweo leaves and shoots were wrapped in ti leaves, cooked and eaten in times of food scarcity by early Hawaiians. symbol,vector,illustration,tree,flora,aweoweo,alaweo,alaweo huna,aheahea,ahea,ahewahewa,kahaihai,native,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Core eudicots,Caryophyllales,Amaranthaceae,Chenopodioideae,Chenopodium oahuense
