July / August 2003 Features:

Lobster Lines
Lobster Lines

For more than a quarter-century, anthropologist James Acheson has studied the age-old self-management strategies of Maine's lobster industry. From the unmarked yet well-defined lobstering territories to the unspoken yet ever-present culture of resource conservation, the traditional model has the potential to inform other fisheries now in crisis.

 
On the Trail of Maine's Ice Age
On the Trail of Maine's Ice Age

As the Ice Age ended almost 14,000 years ago, glaciers moved through Down East Maine, leaving scars on the landscape that are still visible to the trained eye. Now a UMaine geologist wants to share with the public the scientifically and historically significant evidence of the deglaciation trail.  

 
Commitment to the Rural Way of Life
Committment to the Rural Way of Life

In areas where healthcare providers are traditionally in short supply, students in UMaine's Rural Family Nurse Practitioner Program are addressing the needs of the underserved by increasing access to primary care for people of all ages. In so doing, they are helping to preserve the quality of Maine's rural way of life.

 
Painterly Realism
Painterly Realism

Artist James Linehan combines abstraction with representation to paint Maine landscapes that are always on the edge. His works push the edges of American realism. His subjects are meditative and familiar, yet always showing nature at the edge of human activity. For Linehan, this past decade of landscapes illustrates the edge on which he balances in order to find a stability and stasis in his art.

 
Equestrian Emphasis
Equestrian Emphasis

What started as a student initiative to incorporate horses into the university experience has grown into UMaine's multi-faceted Equine Program, highlighted by an academic focus on the science of horse management, leading research in equine reproduction and support from Maine's harness racing community.

 
Seagrass Health
Seagrass Health

UMaine electrical and computer engineers may not know much about seagrass, but couple their expertise in neural network technology with biologists' observations of the declining underwater plants and you've got the potential to monitor the health of the natural resource worldwide.
