Restored Chesapeake Bay oyster buy boat These traditional boats tended to the oyster fleets working the beds in the Bay, buying harvested oysters from the oystermen in the afternoon, and running those oysters to faraway markets and rail centers in Norfolk, Crisfield, Baltimore, and Washington DC, and to local shucking houses and canneries around the Bay. watercraft,fishing,oystering,shellfish,harvest,market,waterman,livelihood,occupation,working,Talbot County,Maryland

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

Herpestes javanicus (Small Asian Mongoose) Native to India, introduced to Hawaii Island in 1883 (via Jamaica, where it was also introduced), then introduced to Maui, Molokai, and Oahu; none were introduced on the island of Kauai. Mongoose were imported by the sugar industry to control rats in cane fields. This infamous mistake was made without much knowledge about mongoose. Mongoose, which are active during the day, did not control the rats because the rats are primarily active at night. symbol,vector,illustration,invasive,introduced,'Iole manakuke,Chordata,Mammalia,Carnivora,Herpestidae,Herpestes,SBW

Batis maritima (Pickleweed) Pickleweed is an invasive or introduced plant in Hawaii. It has succulent, brilliant green leaves and is common in salt marshes and tidal shorelines. It grows slowly in soils with high salt concentrations and areas with seawater overwash where it suffers little competition from other plants. The species manages salts by sequestering them in cell vacuoles and eventually shedding the leaves. symbol,vector,illustration,flowering,plant,invasive,introduced,turtleweed,saltwort,beachwort,Angiosperms,Eudicots,Rosids,Brassicales,Bataceae,SBW
