Dr. Sarah Nelson, assistant research professor at the University of Maine, is working with parks in the eastern United States collecting dragonfly nymphs, and sending them to a lab for mercury analysis. She started her work in Acadia National Park (in Maine) using students and teachers to successfully collect the nymphs. She is now expanding her work to other National Parks including Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The ongoing research is investigating whether the dragonfly nymph's size, taxonomic family, or other factors explain part of the spread in the data.

Same here thanks
Can you help me with another one
Post another question and then I will ^_^
Which line from the text explains why people are in the parks gathering nymphs?
Mercury gets into the environment through the burning of garbage, especially medical wastes, and some types of coal
The park has engaged park visitors, students, teachers, and citizen scientists in a project to collect immature dragonflies
Mercury contamination can lead to poisonous effects upon wildlife and human health
Dragonflies are sentinel species, meaning they are good indicators of mercury contamination in ecosystems
