Information Specialist
Dann Blackwood
Equipment Used
Sample containers
tie wraps
Try to determine if tunicates differ in DNA depending on what they grow on.  Try 
to determine is tunicates affect eelgrass growth and shoot density.
Information to be Derived
Samples and chemical analysis;
Tunicate samples taken for DNA analysis.
12 samples preserved: 6 from eelgrass and 6 from hard man-made substrate. Photos 
taken with drop camera system. 26 Samples tagged for eelgrass shoot density and 
growth. No live eelgrass observed in Tashmoo Pond, so no samples or photos

Science Strategy:
Continued during 2010-101-FA.  Sites reocccupied on Oct 14 to take the 12 DNA 
samples and collect the eelgrass that was tagged on the 29th of September. Small 
aluminum boat used for mooring transport on 29th, canoe used on October 14 for 
equipment transport and survey.
