Northern lakes

Since my daughter just did her science project on the northern lakes of Minnesota, I thought I would post a couple of articles on the great lakes of that area.

The first one, “Invasive Earthworms Denude Forests in U.S. Great Lakes Region” by Michael Tennesen at Scientific American. Earthworms?!

The other ones (actually two on the same topic) are entitled “Great Lake’s Sinkholes Host Exotic Ecosystems Akin to Iced-over Antartic Lakes” at Science Daily and “Odd Life Found in Great Lakes” at Live Science tell an interesting tale.

Good night-
