Abstract:

Part contest and festival, part educational event and scientific endeavor, Connecticut's popular BioBlitz brings together researchers from the University of Connecticut and other organizations to see how many species they can count in a local park-in a single 24-hour period. This program spotlights the 2000 BioBlitz, which took place at Hubbard Park, in Meriden-1,800 acres of mixed hardwood forest, ponds, swampy wetland, small creeks, mowed lawns, and a large reservoir. Total yield? 1,898 species, including a peregrine falcon, copperhead snakes, and two types of sedge plants that had not been sighted in the state since 1916.
