Extractions: Everglades Restoration. Scientists from the USGS BRD participate on the South Florida Ecosystem Restoration Working Group with members of the Miccosukee Tribe of Florida Indians and the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Research to be undertaken is identified by the Working Group with input from the Tribal representatives. The Working Group is more collaborative than some because of the active participation by the two Tribes. In consultation with the Working Group, BRD scientists focus on landscape ecology, wetland ecology, fire ecology, ornithology and ichthyology, coral reef ecology, and long-term monitoring. USGS also had developed a set of computer landscape models to support decisionmaking models. These models include population models of the Florida panther, Cape Sable seaside sparrow, Florida snail kite, American alligator, American crocodile, wood stork, great blue heron, white ibis, and great egret. email@example.com

Penn-Merck is joined in its efforts by many universities, museums, private agencies and professional organizations all dedicated to supporting the teaching of science in Philadelphia's public schools. Oversight for these diverse efforts is provided by the Urban Systemic Initiative (USI), part of the School District of Philadelphia's Children Achieving agenda. While Penn-Merck has been aware of USI activities since we began in 1994, and both programs are funded by the National Science Foundation, our work has recently evolved into a fully-fledged partnership. As you are certainly aware, it has been a year of many changes in science education in our district: new standards, increased emphasis on assessment and a shift away from the widely-used Museum-to-Go kits. To guide these developments and coordinate our response, Penn-Merck, School District and Franklin Institute Science Museum staff have been meeting regularly since the Fall. Outcomes of these meetings include preliminary recommendations concerning appropriate materials, staff development opportunities and guidelines for school-based planning.

One of the greatest obstacles to the conservation of biodiversity is the lack of easily accessible information about the overall distribution and condition of the plants, animals, and ecosystems that sustain them. The problem is twofold - huge data gaps and poorly organized, inconsistent, and often unintelligible information that isn't useful to policy makers or the public. There have been many attempts to organize biological information to make it more widely available and useful.

Extractions: Densities of several species of deer are increasing strongly in many areas of lowland England. This has widely caused severe impacts on woodland regeneration and vegetation structure. It has created particularly serious difficulties for maintaining traditional coppice management systems which are of high value for nature conservation. Using data from a variety of sources we show how browsing pressure has complex effects on vegetation structure by altering stem densities, tree height, canopy closure and foliage profiles. Data are presented to illustrate these changes in coppiced woodland. We review the implications for plant and animal communities. It is concluded that the scale of habitat changes now occurring in many lowland English woods as a result of intensified browsing pressure will have long-term ecological effects and is likely to lead to a reduction in the conservation value of many sites unless checked.

Extractions: EXPANSIVE NEW FACILITY In the early decades of its history, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology not only lacked a building of its own, it didn't even have permanent office space. Founded in 1915 by Arthur A. "Doc" Allen, the "Lab" was shuffled from building to building on the Cornell campus. And yet during those early years, the Lab was already a place of innovative bird research, where many top ornithologists completed their graduate studies. The first recordings of bird songsfor which the Lab would eventually become world famoustook place then, as well as the Lab's first efforts to engage the public directly in the study of birds. Doc Allen always firmly believed that developing a strong public interest in birds was the most effective way to promote bird conservation. The day eventually came when the Lab of Ornithology outgrew the space that Cornell provided on campus, and it was time to start searching for a new home. Businessman Lyman K. Stuart generously offered to provide funding to purchase a site and construct a new facility. There was probably never any doubt that the Lab would be housed at Sapsucker Woods, a favorite birding area of Doc Allen's since he first came to Ithaca as a Cornell undergraduate in 1903. Unfortunately, in the intervening years, a large part of the woods had been cleared for agriculture. The site where the Lab facility was erected stood in the middle of an empty field.

Extractions: Lesson Title Draw On Nature Focus: Through an integration of art and science activities focusing on the life and works of John Abbot, students will prepare a "nature journal". Background for Educators The Draw on Nature Unit focuses on the life and work of John Abbot, an 18 th century naturalist and artist. While Abbot has been compared to fellow artist and scientist, James John Audubon, Abbot focused his life's work in his native Georgia. Abbot is thought to have made over 5,000 watercolor sketches in his lifetime. His work as a scientific observer and recorder of the wildlife in and around the Savannah River valley make him an ideal subject to focus on the connection between art, nature, and science. John Abbot was born in England in 1751.

Arctic Archival Observatory Year 1 Report the Philippines for a forthcoming collaborative study of ornithology has also arrangedwith the National Marine fishery, thus extending AAO activities into the http://arctos.museum.uaf.edu:8080/AAO/aao_report.shtml
Extractions: Arctic Archival Observatory Annual Progress Report, Year 1 This report highlights the accomplishments of Year 1 activities in each of the four major initiatives identified in the original proposal. The report closes with a summary of Synergistic Activities occurring as a consequence of the existence of the AAO. These activities are fulfilling the scope and depth of the AAO, as originally envisioned. List of publications associated with all of these activities (Appendix I), relevant websites for the AAO (Appendix II), and Curricula Vitae of new personnel associated with the AAO (Appendix III) are appended. Initiatives- 1) Refine a Geo-referenced Information Network The AAO is developing a georeferenced information network that will manage data on archived specimens and samples, supporting broad use of AAO materials and documentation of their significance. In September, Dorothy Corbett became the AAO as a programmer analyst (CV appended). Corbett has extensive experience supporting systems that provide access to scientific data over the web. Data from the UAM Mammal Collection was moved onto Arctos, the AAO database and web server. A web interface to the collection data has been implemented. Users can map localities using the Xerox PARC map server. A security flag in the database prevents display of sensitive records or fields on the web. The web interface was extended to incorporate data linking specimen records to the projects using them. We can now link specimen-producing projects to projects that use those specimens and vice-versa. Project descriptions and associated publications are also accessible in the interface. We anticipate bringing further AAO collections into the system on roughly the following schedule:
