Climate Change: In Our Backyard
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:56:45

Using close-to-home examples, the views of leading scientists come alive as they show how climate change can affect almost every aspect of our lives - and in turn, how we affect the climate.

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

Because spring comes so late to northern New England, things have to happen quickly and profusely. Spring is the time of year that wildlife and plants come to life again and get right to the business of creating new life.

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?

Bodies In Motion: The Biomechanics of Sports
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:54:36

Using athletics, QUEST takes a fresh look at the way our bodies move. Bridging the gap between research and the playing field, coaches, trainers and athletes themselves discover how to optimize performance and what to do when injury causes that performance to fail.

Winter
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:56:43

For those plants and animals that don't migrate south for winter, a lot of preparation goes into getting ready for winter. When it comes to dealing with winter, plants and animals know things we humans don't.

Gulf of Maine
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image

As QUEST takes us into the Gulf of Maine, we see a dynamic web of life, not as an extension of our world, but as its own ecosystem. What is going on down there? Can more be done?

Healthy Balance-How To Judge
MPBN: Quest Series, Moving Image, 0:00:53

If the boundaries between ecosystems have become blurred from species moving around, how can scientists judge what a healthy balance is in an ecosystem like the Gulf of Maine?

A Part of the Main
MPBN: Home Series, Moving Image, 0:26:01

As Europeans began to look seriously towards Maine as a desirable economic region, there were many debates about who owned or controlled the varied and plentiful natural resources, especially timber. In the mid-1800’s, the timber harvest from the communities in the far north woods traveled via the river communities to the prosperous coast where the wealth of natural resources set sail for the world beyond. Today, these distinct regions remain intact, each with a different story to tell about how history has played itself out since that time.
