Bioinvasion
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 00:58:03

As human activity silently globalizes our world, our modern day ecology is under onslaught from spreading alien organisms. These plants and animals are capable of moving aggressively into a habitat and monopolizing resources to the detriment of other species. Can scientists help us win the war against this bio-invasion?

A Place Apart
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:27:01

The history behind the image of Maine remains a vital part of how we and those from away view Maine today.

Rolling back the frontier
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 0:26:45

In the 1600s, European settlers left everything they knew to take advantage of Maine’s abundant resources. Despite back-breaking work, a harsh climate, and cultural clashes, they successfully carved out a new life for themselves. But by the end of the century, most of them would leave Maine in fear and live for years as war refugees.
