BIOL 264

Flora and Fauna of New England

Extending from the Canadian border, south to Long Island sound, New England is the northernmost part of the United States. The six states that comprise the region-Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island-together cover 63,012 square miles. Five of the six states are coastal; New Englands coastline is more than 6100 miles long. Vermont is the only inland state; still, much of its western border is defined by 120 mile long Lake Champlain. New England is a region of high mountains, valleys, rolling plateaus, lakes, rivers, and seacoasts, an extremely varied landscape with a diverse flora and fauna and a unique land-use history. This course focuses on the flora and fauna of New England, especially the ever-changing force of New England and the six primary forest regions, in addition to the amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals found throughout New England
