Abstract:
Plymouth was founded in 1787, and, as a waterfront town, much of its history is associated with the Roanoke River. No longer a main route for agriculture and forestry products, most of the traffic is now recreational. However, as a waterfront community the town faces flooding from heavy downpours, hurricanes with storm surges and rising sea levels. Covi discusses with town leaders their approaches to dealing with rising water in the future.

Abstract:
The signature species that inhabits North Carolina's seashore dunes is a grass that mimics oats. It is a species that thrives in harsh conditions--salt, wind, ocean waves, burning sun. They offer storm protection by trapping sand that builds dunes, and they also provide habitats for birds, amphibians, and reptiles. Settlage discusses current research on this unique species.

Abstract:
River herring have been fished for over 350 years, making it one of the oldest fisheries in the country. At one time the herring filled eastern NC rivers by the millions, but now the number has been dramatically reduced. Causes suggested are dams and developments that block access to spawning grounds, pollution, overfishing, and predation by striped bass. The herring have not rebounded even after management agencies have restricted harvests. Allegood discusses ongoing herring research.
