2. Emerald Ash Borer Display & Research Guide
A new display in Fogler Library introduces the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive beetle that targets ash trees. The EAB has recently entered Maine and poses a threat to our ash populations, affecting Maine’s forests, ecology, lumber industry, landscape, and Maine’s Indian Basketmakers, who rely on the Brown Ash (Fraxinus nigra) trees for their baskets.
Visit our online guide about the Emerald Ash Borer to learn more. The display is located in the lobby outside the Oakes Room.
3. IPCC Global Warming Display & Research Guide
A new display in Fogler Library covers the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report 15: Global Warming to 1.5°C. This report, written by almost 100 scientists covering over 6,000 peer-reviewed research articles, illustrates the effects of a global temperature increase of 1.5°C and 2°C (temperature increase limits set by the Paris Agreement of 2015). The display also includes an interactive element, asking the UMaine community to share their thoughts on the IPCC report and climate change in Maine.
Visit our online guide about IPCC SR15: Global Warming to 1.5°C to learn more. The display is located in the hallway on the first floor of Fogler Library.
