The Mission of the Institute

The Institute is a 501(c)(3) scientific and literary nonprofit organization which is dedicated to contributing to a greater interest in scholarly and educational pursuits, especially in the natural history sciences. It maintains an interdisciplinary focus in order to better understand complex relationships among disciplines. Its mission is international in scope. In pursuing its mission, the Institute recognizes that greater interests in scholarly and educational pursuits is something that everyone benefits from.

Program Activities

The Eagle Hill Institute (formerly the Humboldt Field Research Institute) is located on the eastern coast of Maine and is perhaps best known for the advanced natural history science seminars and scientific illustration workshops it has offered since 1987. Its commitments expanded over time to include the publication of 3 peer-reviewed scientific journals. The Northeastern Naturalist and Southeastern Naturalist are tandem natural history science journals for eastern North America, while the Journal of the North Atlantic is a circum-North Atlantic archaeology and environmental history journal. The Institute is developing a 4th journal, Space and Evolution, which will serve as an international forum for specialists involved in furthering humankind’s efforts to explore Space and settle off-Earth Space. Other efforts of the Institute include a public library collection, a residency program for scholars and scientific illustrators, the annual Northeast Natural History Conference, occasional expeditions into the Orinoco region of Venezuela, and public lecture programs.

For amphibian species suspected of undergoing enigmatic declines, it is important to determine the effort required to confidently establish species absence. Desmognathus auriculatus (Southern Dusky Salamander) has purportedly gone from being quite common throughout the southeastern US Coastal Plain to now being enigmatically rare.

We summarized all known historical and contemporary data on the geographic distribution of Etheostoma raneyi (Yazoo Darter), a range-restricted endemic in the Little Tallahatchie and Yocona rivers (upper Yazoo River basin), MS. We identified federal and state land ownership in relation to the darter's distribution and provided quantitative estimates of abundance of the species.

We describe a process for developing an index of biotic integrity (IBI) for resident fish communities in an ecoregion that exhibits low natural species richness. From 1990 to 2006, fish community samples were collected by the North Carolina Division of Water Quality (NCDWQ) at 36 sample sites in the Cape Fear, Lumber, and Yadkin river basins within the Sandhills region of North Carolina.

The control of invasive exotic plants is often deemed important for managing native wildlife, but surprisingly little research exists that evaluates benefits to wildlife, including species of conservation concern. Melaleuca quinquenervia (Melaleuca) is an invasive, non-native, broad-leaved tree that aggressively displaces native plant communities in south Florida.
