Journal articles Findings:Male Female Ratio 2017 Green Crab Trap Data The Bath Middle School 7 graders have been learning how are green crabs impacting the marine ecosystem. We have been doing this because they are eating other species and reproducing quickly. The week we went claiming we used the catch and release method. We caught the crabs with a legal trap. Another thing we did is use sardines dip in oil The data showed that there is more males than females. Also the data showed that there is lots of crabs in Todd’s Landing and Griffith’s Head. Lastly we figured out that green crabs have been living long times even without missing legs. 2017-12-20 RockCrabsClan 0
Journal articles Findings:Green Crabs Invasion Abstract Green crabs are an invasive species. We are studying these crabs and their population.The green crabs harm our ecosystem because they eat clams and small fish. We caught the green crabs by putting a trap in the water and baiting it with sardines in oil. The trap was hauled day after day and the crabs were counted. We put insta dry nail polish on the crabs to see if they were caught the following day. There was only one crab that we caught, that had paint on their shell. Everyday we checked the trap. Some days lobsters were in the trap. 2017-12-20 101SzechuanSauc... 0
Journal articles findings:Invasive Green Crabs Population on the Coast of Maine Abstract We caught green crabs to find data to hep find out how many green crabs there are. We marked the crabs with nail polish but first we had to put nail polish remover to get rid of the bacteria so the crabs wouldn't die. If we didn't the alcohol which could have potentially killed the crabs we caught. Some of the crabs we caught were aggressive and we found out that way the hard way, the crabs tried to escape and tried to pinch us. We were lucky that the crabs couldn’t pinch us. 2017-12-20 crabbydestroyers 0
Journal articles Fall 2015 and 2017, Male Female Ratio The green crabs are destroying the habitat of several juvenile creatures. They are threatening to put thousands of men and women out of their jobs. My science class went to Reid State Park, Todd’s Landing in Georgetown Maine to find out why the green crab population has gone up dramatically in the past two years and collect data. Another science class went to Ft. Popham. We collected data by using legal round crab traps and the catch and release method. My graphs show how much the crab population has changed in the past two years. 2017-12-19 MarsBars 0
Journal articles Findings: Male female ratio of green crabs, fall 2015-2017 Green crabs are eating away the habitats of many juvenile creatures. They are also going to put the hundreds of men and women working in the clamming industry out of jobs. My science class went to Reid State Park to find out, and collect data on the green crab. We did this by setting traps, marking the crabs, and finding their size and sex. When I analyzed our data I found that in 2016, the female population went up by 7.8% at Griffiths Head, 43% at Todds Landing, and 5% in Fort Popham. But then decreased a back down to what it was before in 2017. 2017-12-19 TinyElephant 0
Journal articles Female Male and Crab Colors Popham State Park Fall 2017 BMS 7th graders are trying to learn more about the green crab female/male ratios and how green crabs are overpopulating so fast. My articles purpose is to figure out why the green crab population growing so quickly. The catch and release was used for catching the green crabs. We used legal crabs traps and sardines in oil as bait. At Popham State the female ratio was 47.2%, and the male ratio was 52.8%, having male dominate. 2017-12-19 101SzechuanSauc... 1
Blog entries Burning Bush I think we found a Burning Bush. I think we found a Burning Bush because the stem has a small crevice throughout it. It also has two different colors green and brown. The burning bush has multiple stems. One reason why this plant is a burning bush is because, the stem on a burning bush has a crevice and the brown part sticks out. There are small points that come out about every 2 inches. The burning bushes stem doesn’t have many leaves but it does have a pretty good amount. The leaves change from green to pinkish red. They are simple leaves, and are placed opposite from each other. 2017-11-15 flamablepickles 0
Species Cards Burning Bush I think I found the burning bush because I measured the bush and it was about 60 inches or 5 feet tall. It will only grow a few more feet. The Burning Bush slightly bends over like a tree. The Burning Bush has a spread of five to seven feet, and our plant was the same. Our plant looked a lot like the Burning Bush, everything was the same as the description on Vital Signs. After we looked at other examples we decided that it was the Burning Bush. The leaf of a Burning Bush is an oval shape with a pointed tip. It has toothed edges and an opposite leaf arrangement. 2017-11-15 bluebananas 0
Species Cards Sea Potato/Oyster Thief It is a very windy, wet day at Kettle Cove. The waves were coming in fast. We are making our way over the field of seaweed and rocks. It smells like seaweed and was cloudy. I hear the waves crashing. The seaweed is wet and slippery. I find it difficult that I keep slipping on the seaweed. I am surprised that the Sea Potato looks like thin paper or a dried out hollow grape. The Sea Potato is very hard to find and it is buried up at the top of the hill in the back of the seaweed pile. It is windy and looks like it is going to rain soon, but doesn’t end up raining too much. 2017-11-06 The Tater Tots 0
