    from Jorge Mederos Added 112 0 0

    Collserola Natural Park has a great natural and cultural heritage with a long history. But urban pressures exerted by Barcelona, and other small towns around, threaten the survival of their flora and fauna. This video, designed for Round 3 of #SciFund Challenge, show the project that we do in Collserola since 2009, to study the diversity of insects and other arthropods on the canopy and understory. ___________ El Parque Natural de Collserola cuenta con un gran patrimonio natural y cultural con una larga historia. Pero las presiones ejercidas por Barcelona y otras poblaciones a su alrededor amenazan la supervivencia de su flora y fauna. Este vídeo, diseñado para el round 3 de #SciFund Challenge, muestra el proyecto que realizamos en Collserola desde el año 2009, para estudiar la diversidad de insectos y otros artrópodos a largo plazo en el dosel y sotobosque.

                    • "Fire in the Amazon" - a 2012 SciFund Challenge by Amy Thissell


                      from Amoreena Thissell Added 26 0 0

                      This is a video describing my 2012 SciFund Challenge project. The project focuses on fire in the Amazon forests where questions have been raised about the viability of certain tree species that do not have adaptations to fire and that have the potential to be beaten out by other species that do have such adaptations. One species that has developed some adaptations is silver bay (Ocotea guianensis), found in the southeastern Brazilian Amazon. I hope to raise money to take my first trip to the Amazon to attend the ATBC 2012 annual meeting and start a small project studying the adaptations of silver bay. This project will most likely be the basis for my Masters thesis that I will be starting at Penn State University this coming August.
