#Regram #RG @mongabay: According to a study published in the journal PloS One late last year, there has been little attempt to understand the impacts on Amazonian mammals of converting primary and secondary forests into oil palm plantations despite the fact that the areas most likely to be converted to oil palm plantations overlap with areas harboring numerous threatened species of birds and mammals.

Multiple types of unicellular locomotion in time lapse. Several genera of protists are in this clip, sped up 6x. A naked clear amoeba is at center, moving via pseudopods. Numerous yellow oval diatoms also glide around. Long strands of filamentous Cyanobacteria strains (clear and green) wiggle in also. A small clear multicellular gastrotrich swims quickly by. Numerous ciliates also dart around. Single cell organisms are incredibly diverse, and busy, as one drop of fresh Florida pond water shows; magnified 100x brightfield. #microbiology #protist #protozoa #gastrotrich #amoeba #cyanobacteria #diatom #algae #ciliate #bacteria #timelapse #traffic #pondlife #ecosystem #locomotion #ecology #freshwater #movement #cilia #science #creature #biodiversity #microbes #cell #life #species

In South Africa, the war is fought at multiple levels with elements that define the nation: iconic wildlife being poached, loss of habitat, race, poverty, overpopulation. In essence, it’s humans versus nature. And hope, where it exists, lies in basic education and jobs in tourism.

#Repost @brightveganfuture with @get_repost ・・・ (2726) Repost from @vegan.purity @meat_your_future "This heart surgeon is 104 years old. But, unlike any other surgeon we know of, he was still operating until the age of 95. . Dr. Ellsworth Wareham is still going strong at 104, and, from the latest information we have, he says he has no health problems or aches. . He has been a vegan for over 50 years and has some very compelling information to share (so please listen to the video!). . Health is so important. We all come to realize this at some point in our lives, usually not until we have health problems ourselves. With health, we have everything. Without it, we are devastated. . While there are some health issues beyond our control, there are many within it – including what we put into our bodies three times a day. So, why not do our best to have good health? . We would love to be alive at 104, and as vibrant and healthy as Dr. Wareham. What an inspiration! . A vegan diet has served him well (to say the least), and indeed it would serve ALL of us well. Apart from helping our health, a mass global shift away from animal foods is urgently needed to save the planet its biodiversity and, of course, it’s the right thing to do for the animals as well. .

I rarely photograph plants—not because I don't like them, but because I think it is actually really hard to capture their beauty in a still image. Also, I do not know how to ID plants properly, so most my photo tags say just "plant" or "flower". These are a few plants I photographed at Parque Nacional del Río Abiseo, Peru during @natgeo expedition to inventory the biodiversity of the park (photo 3 of 3) . . . . . . #plant #biodiversity #peru #natgeo #natgeoxplorer #explorer #explorador #abiseo #peru #andes #worldheritage #unesco #conservation #biodiversidade #planta

8am and it’s a wrap! The final morning of canopy fogging began by getting up at 1am in order to fog 30 stations (tree canopy locations) before the weather and light conditions woke up. We completed fogging by 4.30am and then waited two hours for the insects to drop from the canopy. 🌳💤 It’s essential to get along with your team in the field. Even when you don’t get along or disagree about protocols. We had our fights but this woman entomologist , well I’d go into battle with her. She co-lead a team of eight people with the enormous task of completing 100 canopy fogging events in just 10 days. It was against the odds but we did it! We were spat out of the jungle, tired, in need of a boil-wash, but stronger than ever! 👩‍🔬👩‍🔬💪 Who would you go into battle with? 🖤🖤🌳 - - - #friendshipgoals #fieldwork #womeninstem #entomologist #entomology #jungle #research #biodiversity #yasuninationalpark #yasuni #tropicalforest #girlcrush #canopyfogging #nhm

I found this beautiful scorpion this morning beneath a shale rock. Parabuthus planicauda is a common thick tailed scorpion found beneath rocks in the Overberg Renosterveld. It sting is medically significant and one will need to get to hospital when stung. #parabuthus #parabuthusplanicauda #venomousscorpion #thicktailedscorpion #scorpion #butidae #scorpionsofinstagram #overbergrenosterveld #overberg #renosterveld #biodiversity #scorpionsofsouthafrica #invertebrate

@heromotocorplimited Plant, Halol, Vadodara, Gujarat, India achieved Platinum rating under @igbconline Green Factory Buildings Rating system. Mr. Mukesh Goyal, Plant Head, Halol, Vadodara quoted - "Being a business leader and a leading motorcycle company in India, Hero MotoCorp believes in ‘Manufacturing Happiness’ through its factories, where there’s a complete harmony between man, machine, material and nature to minimize the impact on the environment and develop a healthy ecosystem. At Halol, near Vadodara, we demonstrated our commitment by building most ecological & sustainable plant with concepts like hydroponic farming on roof, dense forest, green walls, zero liquid discharge plant and optimum utilization of natural resources. Winning IGBC “Platinum certification level” consolidates that our efforts are in right direction." Few Green features of the project are documented below: Water Management - Water efficient fittings saves more than 30% water usage Energy Efficiency - The PV panels provide approx 1.9 Megawatts of direct current electricity to the air conditioning system - Building Integrated PhotoVoltaic (BIPV) Solar adds sustainability & aesthetics value - Efficient building envelope and 100% LED, saves more than 50% energy Resource Management - Hydroponics to grow food on roof #greenery #ecology #greenratingsystem #sustainability #energy #environment #hydroponics #resources #Vadodara #greenfactory #utilization #greenratings #biodiversity #greenfactory #greenspaces

➡️Life cycle of Battus polydamas 🦋 This species of the Papilionidae family is common all around the Neotropics 🌎 It is one the rare species even widespread in the Caribbean Islands 🏝 It is very easy to rear in small glasshouses. I raise them on all kind of Aristolochia lianas 🌿 which make them toxic ☠ to predators | such as birds 🕊 and lizards 🦎| thanks to the aristolochic acid contained in their hostplants. The imagoes can be found in all kind of deteriorate habitats surrounded with flowers 🌺 Something amazing with this species is the chrysalis polymorphism. Depending on the place they choose to pupate, whether brownish or greenish, the pupae gets green or brown as you can see on the pictures. This mimetic property allows them to match their environment so they can avoid predation. The specimens displayed are all raised in my greenhouses in Panama 🇵🇦 • • 📸 @mena_sebas 🇪🇨 • • • • • • #panama #entomologist #entomology #lepidoptera #lepidopterist #glasshouse #butterfly #papilionidae #arthropod #insect #caterpillar #biology #biodiversity #ecology #animal #dreamwork #botany #tropical #moth #mariposa #researcher #lifecycle

Does anyone else float from project to project, or is it just me? I get to a point where I need to start something fresh. ... and I dont always finish my pieces ( I have quite a back log atm 🤔). Maybe I just have a short attention span 😂. I have decided to do another native Western Australian inspired piece 🌺🍂🍃 Lets hope she gets finished sooner rather than later 😂😂

Happy Terra Madre Day! 🐌 🍒 Terra Madre Day is a major Slow Food event, celebrating local food on a global scale. 🐌 On December 10th, people around the world organize parties and gatherings to celebrate good, clean and fair food: good quality and flavorsome; clean for our bodies, for animals and for the planet; fair for producers and consumers alike. 🐌 Terra Madre Day brings together all who share the vision of a food system that supports local economies, that respects the environment, biodiversity, taste, and tradition. A better alternative is possible! 🐌 To protect our environment and to shine a light on the link between food and climate change, this year, Terra Madre Day is focused on Food for Change, Slow Food’s international campaign to highlight the role of food as a cause, victim, and potential solution to climate change. 🐌 Join us in Barbados, by sharing & tagging @slowfoodbarbados in a photo of your favourite local produce and/or a photo of your local farmer, producer or fisherfolk! . . . #slowfood #slowfoodbb #barbados #supportlocal #Caribbean #goodcleanfairfood #votewithyourfork #sustainableliving #terramadreday #biodiversity #localfood #foodforchange #terramadre
