Webinar - The Influence of A Warming Climate on Aquatic Invaders in Maine Lakes
This is a fascinating and sobering presentation by Roberta Hill to the Lake Stewards of Maine and very relevant to our lakes in New Hampshire. Our northern lakes have historically been protected to some degree by a relatively cool climate. Many species of invasive flora and fauna that have successfully infested lakes throughout much of the US have failed to gain a foothold in the Northeast, in part due to our long, cold winters, and cool water temperatures. Roberta Hill provides an overview of the affects of climate change upon Maine lakes (and by association New Hampshire Lakes), and discusses the implications for local native lake communities.
