1. Two Water Voles on the Bankside


    from Jo Cartmell / Added

    As I was filming the a water vole swimming and then climbing up the bank, I became aware of another one nearby. They seemed to ignore each other. The first water vole then dived into a bolt hole straight into the water after some moments. The second water vole began to eat and then also dived into its burrow. They can disappear with amazing speed!

        We are going to counter industrial scale deforestation using industrial scale reforestation. Destruction of global forests from lumber, mining, agriculture, and urban expansion destroys 26 billion trees each year. We believe that this industrial scale deforestation is best combated using the latest automation technologies. http://www.biocarbonengineering.com/ Copyright: Ziad Oakes https://vimeo.com/118457337

          Living networks connect and support life forms large and small — from colonies of tiny microbes and populations of massive whales to ever-expanding human societies. In the California Academy of Sciences' 2015 original planetarium show, Habitat Earth, discover what it means to live in today's connected world. Through stunning visualizations of the natural world, dive below the ocean's surface to explore the dynamic relationships found in kelp forest ecosystems, travel beneath the forest floor to see how Earth's tallest trees rely on tiny fungi to survive, and journey to new heights to witness the intricate intersection between human and ecological networks. Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Frances McDormand, this 2015 show from the Morrison Planetarium features stunning visualizations of both biological and human-built networks (and of how they intersect), taking show-goers on an incredible, immersive journey through the interconnectedness of life on Earth. Produced by the California Academy of Sciences.

            HDV, 3:41 min, color, stereo, 2013. Concept, Visuals, Sound: Lorenzo Oggiano. "Quasi-Objects / Cinematic Environment #2" is the tenth video of the "Quasi-Objects" cycle. "Quasi-Objects" is an art project (2003 - ongoing) consisting of 3d generated videos and prints, a practice of "organic re-design" that aims to process its synthetic / combinatory genesis as an operative advantage to stimulate thought and dialogue on the progressive relativisation of natural forms of life as consequence of techno-biological evolution. "Quasi-Objects" regards data actualization, the visualisation of synthetic organisms and ecosystems as transient output of an operative practice: "aesthetics of process". "Life is a real and autonomous process independent from any specific material manifestation."

              Invasive species have the potential to drastically alter the Ecology of the ecosystems they invade. Such is the case of the Zebra (Dreissena polymorpha) and Quagga (Dreissena bugensis) mussel, which have significantly modified physical and biotic conditions within the Great Lakes. Additionally, these mussels are prolific bio-foulers, causing damage and increased wear and maintenance for industrial and municipal water supply infrastructure. In this webinar we will discuss the introduction and response to invasive Dreissena mussels, from the perspective of a large utility company.

                  Although buoyant economic growth in Peru has generated positive macro-economic figures, this evolution has largely bypassed the remote communities in the Andes, where poverty pockets are widely present. Huamantanga is an example of such a poverty pocket. The main productive activities in Huamantanga are agriculture and cattle-raising for cheese production. The community confirms that these activities are limited because of the lack of water. This is the reason that, in the past, people living in the area developed practices of water infiltration enhancement in the rainy season to improve their water availability, in the springs, during the dry season. These practices are called mamanteo or amunas, and, until today, they are very poorly studied. The Huamantanga communities are under severe pressure to implement land conservation practices, not only to improve their own livelihoods but also to safeguard ecosystem services for downstream users. The tropical Andes more generally are therefore also an important test-bed for payment for ecosystem services models.

                    from Jo Cartmell / Added

                    This charming water vole emerged from a burrow on the opposite bank after checking that the coast was clear. The noisy strimmers were drowning out the noise of any potential predator which made the water vole even more nervous than usual and it often stopped to check if it needed to bolt!

                      Between the 1940s and the late 1960s, a series of research, development, and technology transfer initiatives known as the Green Revolution increased agricultural production worldwide—particularly in the developing world—beginning most markedly in the late 1960s. The Green Revolution shape ADB's operations from its establishment in 1966 and throughout the 1970s.
