Article and Video: Returning to the Scene of the Grime (Boston Globe)
On November 21, 2010, the Boston Globe's Beth Daley reported on the research of four researchers from Massachusetts. The scientists--all based out of the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences in Plymouth, Mass.--are documenting the effects that the Gulf oil disaster continues to have on ecosystems along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico. Their specialty: shorebirds. We thought you would find their work with the American oystercatcher (Haematopus palliatus) particularly interesting.
