Abstract:
Cricket Rakita and Dr. Lee Barnes of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association believe that vegetable diversity is under threat. As large seed companies buy up smaller seed companies and patent the seeds or genetically alter them, fewer varieties are being grown. With fewer varities of vegetables grown, certain types of heritage vegetables are lost along with their history. Rakita and Barnes discuss the importance of saving seeds to protect diversity, especially the heritage of the Southeast.

Abstract:
For nearly twenty years, a massive effort has been underway to inventory all of the organisms that live in the Great Smoky Mountains. The All Taxa Biodiversity Inventory is the largest sustained natural history inventory in the United States, and has led to the discovery of thousands of new species.

Abstract:
The macrobenthos of Cane Creek, in the Piedmont Plateau of North Carolina, have been sampled by several investigators. This information was combined to generate a list of invertebrate taxa, which could be used as an environmental assessment tool. Average taxa richness and diversity shows little variability across a wide range of North Carolina streams.

Abstract:
The aquatic macroinvertebrates of the Upper French Broad River were sampled over a two-year period beginning in May 1977. The faunas are compared to those of other rivers and streams of the southern Appalachian Mountains. Information is provided on taxa richness and abundance, temporal and spatial changes in the benthic macroinvertebrate communities.

Abstract:
Terrestrial vertebrate studies have been conducted on some of the islands of South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, but information on the vertebrates of many barrier islands is limited. This article describes the previously unreported small mammal fauna of a South Carolina barrier island. Information is provided on species composition, relative abundance, and habitat use.

Abstract:
A report on biological monitoring in North Carolina streams recently released by the Water Quality Section of the North Carolina Division of Environmental Management shows improvement in water quality at twenty-six monitored locations and a decline in quality at five locations. This article provides a summary of the data collected through the Benthic Macroinvertebrate Ambient Network between 1983 and 1990. The data describe the biodiversity and species abundance in association with water quality conditions.
