    Wetlands are topic of concern for scientists, naturalists and conservationists. In this film Dr. Paul Keddy, author of Wetland Ecology: Principles and Conservation (Cambridge University Press 2010) gives a public talk introducing wetlands. He begins with an overview of what makes are area a wetland. He then moves on to topics including: (1) the four different kinds of wetland, (2) the ecological services provided by wetlands, and (3) some simple rules for their conservation. Examples range from the Amazon River in South America, and the West Siberian peatland in central Russia, to local examples in his home county including the Mississippi Lake alluvial wetland and the Appleton swamp—both provincially significant Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest. This presentation was given to the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists in Almonte, Ontario, on 20 February 2014.

        This is a presentation given to a conference "The History and Future of Our Wetlands" sponsored by Ontario Nature on 2 February 2012. The conference was intended to celebrate decades of efforts to protect Ontario wetlands. The talk surveys several decades of scientific progress in understanding causal factors in wetlands, and the usefulness of this science in managing wetlands for conservation. Particular emphasis is placed on the importance of flood cycles in lakes and rivers, and the importance of infertile habitats, in maintaining biological diversity. Two useful models, the CSR model and the pool and filter model, are introduced and briefly described. A two page handout can be downloaded from Keddy's web site (http://www.drpaulkeddy.com/News/Keddy%20--%20Six%20general%20messages%20for%20wetlands%20--%202010.pdf).

            This is full documentary that has aired on regional PBS stations WYES in New Orleans and LPB in Louisiana. It explores the issues surrounding the controversial Mississippi River Gulf Outlet and its contribution to accelerating coastal erosion in lower Louisiana and the epic flooding in St. Bernard Parish and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Communication issues, conflicts between business and residents as well as the operations of Congress and the Army Corps of Engineers are documented.

                This is a talk given in Flagstaff, Arizona to the School of Forestry on 18 April 2007. It explains six basic models that can explain plant diversity in landscapes at different scales. The same models can be used to better manage landscapes to maintain plant diversity. The models include the intermediate diversity model developed by Phil Grime, and the centrifugal model developed by Paul Keddy. Most of the examples come from wetlands, but they can be applied to terrestrial vegetation as well. The general point is that plant diversity can be explained and manipulated with a small tool box of pragmatic models.
