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?

They Came By Sea
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 00:28:01

Europeans arrived here by sea, attracted by the region's phenomenal fisheries and the natural resources visible on the coast. At first, they weren't interested in establishing permanent settlements but, as an appreciation for the economic value of Maine's natural resources grew, colonial settlement began. Today, Maine continues to rely on the economic advantages available through the natural resources of the coast.
