Animated graph of dissolved oxygen measured in Chesapeake Bay at Susquehanna Flats during July 2011 by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. This graph also includes water surface elevations measured by NOAA at Tolchester Beach and Chesapeake City, wind speed and direction measured at Chesapeake City, and a solar day / night indicator. This animated graph uses actual continuous data measurements and was programmed in VBA Excel. Forwarded by John Yagecic of the Delaware River Basin Commission.
It has always amazed us how difficult it is to find native plants at local nurseries. From a practical standpoint, it is logical that the plant species that originally grew in specific local areas are the ones that will do the best. There are many other reasons to consider natives – too many to list here. Unfortunately, it seems that local nurseries rarely focus on natives, consistently defaulting to sexy exotics to catch the eye of their unsuspecting shoppers.
