The Northeast Climate Science Center (NE CSC) region includes 22 states and over 1.2 million stream kilometers. Some of the most densely-populated areas of the US are located in this region, and, in 2010, 40% of its streams were assessed as being at risk for habitat degradation due to urbanization, agriculture, and other human land uses. Climate change is expected to further alter the region’s stream habitats which support diverse and economically-valuable stream fishes.
Comprehensive understanding of both current and future condition of stream habitats is essential for conserving and managing fishes and their habitats, and managers require the ability to integrate such information in a spatially-continuous and scalable format to aid management decisions. To help address that need, we are developing a web-based decision support viewer named “FISHTAIL”. The FISHTAIL viewer will integrate results of both a current condition assessment of stream habitats based on fish response to human land use, water quality impairment, and fragmentation by large dams and road crossings with a future condition assessment identifying which stream habitats may change with regionally-projected future climate.
For this presentation, we will present results of the human land use and fragmentation assessments, highlighting limiting disturbances to habitats as well as species response to specific disturbances in key regions of the NECSC. FISHTAIL will deliver the results and serve as a tool to help natural resource managers, decision-makers, and the public better protect and conserve stream fishes and their habitats now and into the future in the NE CSC region.

Designing Cultural Landscapes - The Present and Future of Cultural Landscape Practice
Investigation and research in the field of cultural landscapes is needed now more than ever as landscape architects and regional planners are asked to expand and change their practices to address the issues of climate change, global urbanization, and economic inequality. Practitioners engaged in the field of cultural landscapes today are building a vital and necessary dimension of continued and innovative success in their professions. This lecture series will provide insight into the past, present and future of cultural landscape research and practice.
The Zube lecture series is named for Ervin Zube, former head of LARP from 1974 to 1980. Professor Zube is internationally known for his leadership in developing a culture of academic research in the profession of landscape architecture. His research made numerous seminal contributions to landscape planning theory and practice. Ervin left UMass for the University of Arizona, where he continued his renowned research and teaching until he passed away in 2001.
Ervin and his wife Margaret endowed at UMass in 2004 to “bring scholars to the department to stimulate and enrich our academic community in landscape architecture and planning." The Zube endowment has been supported generously by alumni, students and faculty.
We honor their leadership and generosity through the lecture series which continues to enrich our community with the thoughts and works of local, national and international academic and professional leaders. The department is pleased to accept donations of any amount to continue to build and enlarge the endowment.

Suz Slezak (of David Wax Museum) CD Release at Passim
Saturday, February 14, 2015 - 8:00pm
Watching the Nighttime Come, the new full length solo album from David Wax Museum vocalist and fiddle player Suz Slezak, was born out of a desire to bring music to her close friends who were young parents. Several years ago, Suz felt inspired to record a small collection of lullabies to give at baby showers, which felt like the most natural and personal gift coming from a musician. These handmade CDs were passed around amongst her friends and became so popular that eventually Suz couldn’t keep up with the demand. She was copying them one-by-one on her laptop computer and cutting out each hand-painted album cover. Instead of trying to mass-produce this homemade collection, it seemed like the perfect time for Suz to go into the studio herself and professionally record a solo album. She imagined a project that would be a more polished and professional version of the handmade lullaby CD, but with her own more personal touch.

In 2011 Lyle released his first EP under the Lyle Brewer Trio entitled Music To My Fears, which includes longtime Boston musicians Dean Casell on bass and Mike Piehl on drums. If nothing else, it's a testament to Brewer's wise-beyond-his-years musicianship that these stalwarts of the local music scene -- guys who have been playing for longer than Lyle has been alive -- don't flinch when asked to back him up on stage or on record. If you love the sound of no-frills, true-blue musicians doing what they were put on this green earth to do, you're sure to dig the trio's Music To My Fears.
Prior to joining the Ryan Montbleau Band in 2011 and starting his trio, Brewer spent two and a half years as the lead guitarist with Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles. Brewer and Borges shared more than a musical bond -- the two were married in 2010 and in the summer of 2011 had their first child, Elliot.
Brewer is also a highly-regarded session musician and touring guitarist, having made records and performed with a huge range of artists including Miss Tess, Chris O'Brien, Dennis Brennan, Rachael Price, Tim Gearan, Anita Suhanin and Schwang, Christian McNeil and the Seamonsters, Jake Armerding, Jimmy Ryan, Jesse Dee, Eilen Jewell, Jerry Miller, Ghosts of Jupiter, and Grimis, of which he was a founding member.
Brewer attended the prestigious New England Conservatory in Boston, studying jazz performance. During that time he made a name for himself as one of the youngest and hungriest guitarists on the Boston music scene, playing by his own estimate, 300 shows a year for one stretch of time. He's dug into it all -- John Scofield and Chet Atkins, Duane Allman and Brad Barr -- from the Conservatory to the Dive Bar, to the main stages of some of the country's finest outdoor music festivals, he's been there.

NYC trio Consider the Source defy easy description. If intergalactic beings of pure energy, after initiation into an order of whirling dervishes, built some kind of pan-dimensional booty-shaking engine, powered by psychedelics and abstract math, it'd probably just sound like a CTS tribute band. Drawing from progressive rock, fusion and jazz, with alien sounds soaked in Indian and Middle Eastern styles, CTS blends disparate parts into a striking, utterly original whole. Dubbed "Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion", the band's music strikes a rare balance between cerebral and emotional, intellectual and primal. A relentless touring schedule has won the band a fervent following from California to Israel, with fans ranging from jam-band hippies and jazz cats to corpse-painted headbangers and prog geeks.Formed in 2004, Consider the Source features Gabriel Marin on fretless double-neck guitar, bassist John Ferrara, and drummer/percussionist Jeff Mann. Called "the guiding light for his generation of six-stringers", Marin channels the mystical fury of McLaughlin and Coltrane into wailing melodies, kaleidoscopic soundscapes and boneshaking riffs. With a background in classical musics both Eurpoean and Indian, and an instinct for avant-jazz and destructive metal, Marin's hypnotic fusion of styles is ever unpredictable. Ferrara's propulsive, percussive attack, equally suited to simple grooves and impossible chords, can ground the music or launch it into space. His madcap gumbo of slap bass, Indian rhythms, earthy minimalism and complex tapping constantly pushes into strange new worlds, whilst still dropping thick booty-clap beats. Underneath them lies Mann's rolling thunder; dense rhythmic architecture built from pure swagger and bounce. Half double-bass prog-metal, half crackle-pop Buddy Rich swing, with African and Balkan swirls, Mann's muscular, freewheeling polyrhythms are the engine fuel for Consider's multiversal mischief. Even when not improvising, Consider's music is always a conversation, a roiling stew of dynamic interplay. Each member of Consider the Source alternately leads and follows, spars and assists; in any single song, alliances are made and broken, bargains struck and divorces finalized.Touring from coast to coast, as well as Europe and the Middle East, has not only earned the band thousands of fans, but has allowed them to perform with wide variety of well-known artists, including Victor Wooten, Wayne Krantz, King Crimson Projekt, Kris Myers (Umphrey's McGee), Wyclef Jean, Andy Statman, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Dumpstaphunk, Keller Williams, George Porter, Jr., Jeff Sipe, Panzerballet (Germany), Eatliz (Israel), Freak Kitchen (Sweden), Morglbl (France), and many others. They have performed at numerous festivals and events, including Catskill Chill, The Big Up, Burning Man, Sun Seekers Ball (Canada), Mid-Summer Meltdown, Rootwire, the NYC Fretless Guitar Festival, and the NYC Gypsy Festival. The band's newest album, "F**k It! We'll Do It Live" is available from considerthesource-nyc.bandcamp.com.
Maria Rowinska has been working with Fordham Records for just over a year and is thrilled to be performing with this amazing group of musicians again. Her performance will include Brazilian classics as well as her own work, which will be released officially in a few months on her first EP.

The Imagination Movers story is the ultimate example of the power of imagination. In 2003, four New Orleans friends Rich Collins, Scott Durbin, Dave Poche and Scott Smitty Smith had an idea. They thought kids wanted and deserved music that spoke to them, not down to them. So, they started gathering after their kids bedtimes to write songs and brainstorm ideas about a childrens television show. Two years later, they had become the latest sensation of their musical city, attracting parents and children alike with an eclectic pop sensibility and lyrical turns about healthy snacks and playing catch and conquering childhood fears of bedtime. Lines to the Movers shows stretched for blocks.When the levees broke after Hurricane Katrina, the far-reaching disaster turned the Movers world upside down, but it didnt put an end to their dream. Even while band members salvaged their belongings from flooded homes and Smith reported to his day job as a fire fighter and first responder they never stopped living according to the Movers motto: Reach high, think big, work hard, have fun!This motto has served the band well. Not even the Imagination Movers themselves could have fully imagined their breakthrough success. The Movers partnered with Disney in 2007 and filmed 75 episodes of their Emmy Award- winning series over three seasons. The show airs in more than 55 countries and theyve sold half a million CDs and DVDs to date.Critical acclaim for the Movers includes nods from Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times, which reported the Movers are prized by many parents for non-condescending lyrics and music that evokes the Beastie Boys or Red Hot Chili Peppers. Parenting magazine praised the bands dash of rebellion and songs that are fresh and treacle-free. National television appearances include The View, Live with Regis & Kelly, and Good Morning America. The Movers earned a Daytime Emmy Award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for outstanding original song in the children's show/animation category. The series is currently aired internationally on the Disney Junior Channel.Imagination Movers are currently developing an animated series Super Movers in partnership with Toronto-based 9 Story Media Group.
