You can use it to create your research poster and save valuable time placing titles, subtitles, text, and graphics. We provide a series of online tutorials that will guide you through the poster design process and answer your poster production questions. To view our template tutorials, go online to PosterPresentations.com and click on HELP DESK. When you are ready to print your poster, go online to PosterPresentations.com Need assistance? Call us at 1.510.649.3001 QUICK START Zoom in and out As you work on your poster zoom in and out to the level that is more comfortable to you. Go to VIEW > ZOOM. Title, Authors, and Affiliations Start designing your poster by adding the title, the names of the authors, and the affiliated institutions. You can type or paste text into the provided boxes. The template will automatically adjust the size of your text to fit the title box. You can manually override this feature and change the size of your text. TIP: The font size of your title should be bigger than your name(s) and institution name(s). Adding Logos / Seals Most often, logos are added on each side of the title. You can insert a logo by dragging and dropping it from your desktop, copy and paste or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Logos taken from web sites are likely to be low quality when printed. Zoom it at 100% to see what the logo will look like on the final poster and make any necessary adjustments. TIP: See if your school’s logo is available on our free poster templates page. Photographs / Graphics You can add images by dragging and dropping from your desktop, copy and paste, or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Resize images proportionally by holding down the SHIFT key and dragging one of the corner handles. For a professional-looking poster, do not distort your images by enlarging them disproportionally. Image Quality Check Zoom in and look at your images at 100% magnification. If they look good they will print well. ORIGINAL DISTORTED Corner handles Good printing quality Bad printing quality QUICK START (cont.) How to change the template color theme You can easily change the color theme of your poster by going to the DESIGN menu, click on COLORS, and choose the color theme of your choice. You can also create your own color theme. You can also manually change the color of your background by going to VIEW > SLIDE MASTER. After you finish working on the master be sure to go to VIEW > NORMAL to continue working on your poster. How to add Text The template comes with a number of pre- formatted placeholders for headers and text blocks. You can add more blocks by copying and pasting the existing ones or by adding a text box from the HOME menu. Text size Adjust the size of your text based on how much content you have to present. The default template text offers a good starting point. Follow the conference requirements. How to add Tables To add a table from scratch go to the INSERT menu and click on TABLE. A drop-down box will help you select rows and columns. You can also copy and a paste a table from Word or another PowerPoint document. A pasted table may need to be re-formatted by RIGHT-CLICK > FORMAT SHAPE, TEXT BOX, Margins. Graphs / Charts You can simply copy and paste charts and graphs from Excel or Word. Some reformatting may be required depending on how the original document has been created. How to change the column configuration RIGHT-CLICK on the poster background and select LAYOUT to see the column options available for this template. The poster columns can also be customized on the Master. VIEW > MASTER.

It is a necessary factor in every ecosystem and can be affected by many variables. In this project we studied the effect of salinity on the biodiversity of tidal plants located on the Nissequogue River in Smithtown, New York. We began our experiment by collecting plant samples and other abiotic data from three different locations along the river; a freshwater, a brackish, and a saltwater location. After collecting our samples, we used equipment from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to extract and sequence DNA from our samples. This allowed us to identify the species of plants we collected. Our hypothesis was that a change in salinity, from freshwater to saltwater, would result in different tidal plant species. The experimental data we collected supported our hypothesis by showing a difference in the tidal plant species from each location we collected from. The data we collected also helped us generate a reason that could account for the difference in biodiversity. Abstract Question Salinity kit Soil testing kits pH test (water and soil) Thermometer Materials Data Conclusions Our hypothesis was that if there is a change from freshwater to saltwater, then the tidal plant species in each area will differ. The data collected from our experiment helped support our hypothesis. In our findings we saw that in the freshwater location, there was a greater amount of biodiversity and the plants were generally larger. On the other hand, we saw that in the saltwater location, the banks had less biodiversity and consisted with only Phragmites. One explanation for this is for the fact that the abundance of freshwater in the freshwater location allowed for a large variety of large plants to live in this area. However, only a thin layer of freshwater on the surface of the water was present at the saltwater location, which minimized the diversity of plant life that could live in this area. This minimized the competition in this area, allowing it to be overrun by Phragmites plants. Future Research The detrimental effects of pollution on plant species living in the polluted areas. The difference in competition along the banks of the Nissequogue River. Does a change in water salinity affect the biodiversity of tidal plants living along the banks of the Nissequogue River? Michael Hennig and Ryan McCarty Comparing the Biodiversity of Freshwater and Saltwater Tidal Plants Hypothesis If there is a change from freshwater to saltwater, then the tidal plant species in each area will differ. Objective Background Procedure Comparing the biodiversity of freshwater and saltwater tidal plants Salinities effect on biodiversity Micropipettes Hot water bath Centrifuge Rulers Tweezers Pestles Gel Electrophoresis Apparatus Buffer The Nissequogue River is an 8.3 mile river that is a New York State Park in Smithtown, NY. Its source, Stump Pond in Caleb Smith State Park Preserve, is freshwater and it ends as saltwater, emptying into the Long Island Sound. It contains the largest coastal wetlands in North Shore Long Island. It is a tidal river, so the tides greatly affect the flow, level, and salinity of the river. The tides create a freshwater location located near the source, a saltwater location near its mouth, and a large area in the middle with brackish water that experiences varying salinity levels depending on the tide. You can find tidal mudflats, both salt and freshwater marshes, and a wide variety of plants and animals. Coastal plants are commonly found on the banks of the river and are crucial for maintaining the stability of the ecosystem. For example, they are the first organisms to inhabit the river’s banks, their roots stabilize the soil, and they provide shelter and protection for other organisms. These coastal plants allow many organisms to live along the banks of the river, increasing biodiversity. A greater amount of biodiversity increases the stability of the ecosystem by giving it a greater chance of surviving natural disasters. 1.We obtained permission from Belmont Lake State Park to take samples from the Nissequogue River. 2.We canoed down the Nissequogue River and stopped at three different locations with varying salinities to collect plant samples and other abiotic data. 3.We isolated and amplified DNA from our plant samples using equipment from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. 4.We performed gel electrophoresis to determine which DNA sequences could be sent away to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory to be sequenced. 5.After receiving the sequences of our samples’ DNA, we compared the DNA sequence of our plant samples with the DNA sequences of species with known sequences on the online database, DNA Subway, to determine the species of our samples. 6.After determining the species of each of our samples, we compared and analyzed the data we collected to help show the difference in biodiversity between the tidal plants in the freshwater, brackish, and saltwater locations.
