Invertebrates on the Marsh

By: Laura Garey @UMaine

The exclosures are back again! An exclosure is a structure that excludes birds from a small area of the marsh to study the impact marsh birds have on their food source, which mostly consists of invertebrates. With invertebrate sampling in the exclosures and paired controls, we may learn if these birds are targeting certain invertebrates as their food source and how that can affect local invertebrate abundance and diversity.
