Rangia cuneata (Atlantic Rangia) The Atlantic Rangia or wedge clam Rangia cuneata originates from the Gulf of Mexico. From there this bivalve colonized the Atlantic coast of North-America and Europe. The species mainly live in estuaries, brackish and freshwater. In ports, the Atlantic Rangia can become a pest as it establishes itself in industrial cooling pipes where it can obstruct optimal water flow. symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Mollusca,Bivalve,Heterodonta,Euheterodonta,Imparidentia,Mactroidea,Mactridae,invasive,ballast water,common rangia,wedge clam,brackish water clam

Dendroctonus ponderosae (Mountain Pine Beetle) The mountain pine beetle, Dendroctonus ponderosae, is a species of bark beetle native to the forests of western North America from Mexico to central British Columbia. It has a hard black exoskeleton, and measures approximately 5 mm, about the size of a grain of rice. In western North America, the current outbreak of the mountain pine beetle and its microbial associates has destroyed wide areas of lodgepole pine forest. symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Arthropoda,Insecta,Coleoptera,Curculionidae,Scolytinae,bark beetle

Hippocampus erectus (Lined Seahorse) The lined seahorse lives in the Atlantic Ocean as far north as Canada and as far south as the Caribbean, Mexico, and Venezuela. It swims in an erect position and uses its dorsal and pectoral fins for guidance while swimming. Lined seahorses feed mainly on minute crustaceans and brine shrimp, which they suck in through their snout.  symbol,vector,illustration,Animalia,Chordata,Actinopterygii,Syngnathiformes,Syngnathidae,northern seahorse,spotted seahorse,fish,Chesapeake

Potential shifts in seasonality in the Northeast and Midwest resulting from climate change The landscapes of the Northeast and Midwest depend on abundant and relatively predictable seasonal water regimes. Human uses of water compete with environmental flows for aquatic species, especially during drought periods. Climate change is predicted to increase temperatures and precipitation variability in the Northeast United States, causing shifts in seasonality.

Historical, predevelopment conditions in the North Central United States, in comparison to the current state, and future trajectory of land and water use This three panel triptych illustrates historical, predevelopment conditions in the North Central United States, in comparison to the current state, and future trajectory of land and water use. Historically, the region adapted and rebounded from droughts, however, with human use and climate change, the resilience of the North Central United States against drought is reaching an unknown state.

Rhyothemis graphiptera (Banded Flutterer) The banded flutterer dragonfly is found along the north and east coasts of Australia as well as Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia. They prefer still or slow-running waters, and glide or flutter their wings slowly. They can change speed and direction suddenly when flight. symbol,vector,illustration,Kakadu,Northern Territory,wetlands,marsh,insect,billabong,catchment,aquatic,Animalia,Arthropoda,Insecta,Odonata,Anisoptera,Libellulidae

Hymenachne amplexicaulis (Olive hymenachne) Hymenachne was introduced into northern Queensland, Australia in the 1970s to use in ponded pastures. It escaped cultivation a few years after its release in 1988. It is spreading throughout the tropical wetlands of northern Australia and is most common in the coastal wetlands of northern Queensland and the Northern Territory.  ian,symbol,illustration,Plantae,Angiosperms,Monocots,Commelinids,Poales,Poaceae,Panicoideae,Hymenachne amplexicaulis,invasive,alien,exotic species,marsh,billabong,Kakadu,Northern Territory

Anseranas semipalmata (Magpie Goose) A waterbird species found in coastal northern Australia. The adult Magpie goose has black and white feathers, a long neck and a cranial knob (smaller in females). They also have orange legs with partly webbed feet, and a red beak with a white hook on the end which assists them in probing for food. The Northern Territory holds the largest populations and breeding areas of the Magpie goose with an estimated population of over 2 million individuals. ian,symbol,illustration,bird,Animalia,Chordata,Aves,Anseriformes,Anseranatidae,Anseranas semipalmata,magpie,goose,wading,wetland,billabong,native
