        • Conserving the Paramo as a Vital Water Resource

          The Paramo is a unique high-altitude grassland that provides the people of Ecuador with the most valuable resource of them all: water. Despite the importance of this ecosystem, protecting it from encroaching development is no easy task. In 2013, NCI served as the lead catalyst towards the creation of the Cajas Biosphere Reserve —a project that the required the cooperation of more than 30 municipalities, regional and national government officials. The project was successfully brokered by NCI and the new UNESCO Biosphere Reserve spans nearly 2.4 million acres of highly-threatened landscape.

            There are more types of bats living on one tiny island in Panama than can be found in all the USA. How can this be? An international team of women scientists brave the tick-infested night forest to find out just how 72 bat species coexist in such a small place.

                  One of the most challenging themes in ecology over the last decades is the quest for the understanding of discontinuous changes in ecosystems. Discontinuous shifts have already been observed and analyzed for a wide variety of ecological systems, including lakes, drylands, peatlands, rangelands, marine systems, and musselbeds. Some of these discontinuous shifts in ecosystems imply undesired and irreversible changes. For example, shallow lakes can suddenly change into eutrophic systems with a large loss in biological diversity. CASCADE is investigating and analyzing a range of dryland ecosystems in southern Europe to obtain a better understanding of sudden shifts in drylands that may lead to major losses in biodiversity and concomitant ecosystem services. Based on these analyses, CASCADE will develop ways to predict the proximity of the CASCADE’s dryland ecosystems to thresholds in such a way that these predictions can be used by policymakers and land users for more sustainable management of drylands worldwide.

                    “Simply invoking the word nature can get you in trouble these days.” ... So starts Chapter 2 of Green Builder Media’s Celestia Project. Addressing biofilia—our instinctive bond with nature—this narrative gets to the bottom of why we need to preserve or restore ecoosystems. But unlike the usual approach, such as designing ecosystems into new developments or creating habitats that might attract a certain species, the case is made for “wilding” future cities. “The key to future biodiversity, ironically, may be how we plan and adapt our cities. The World Health Organization predicts that by 2050, the number of people worldwide living in cities will almost double, “increasing from approximately 3.4 billion in 2009 to 6.4 billion in 2050.” If this is true, then what does the future hold for suburbia?
