“Plastic islands being used to restore African lake”
As the ever-growing giant flotilla of floating refuse known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch will show us, we shouldn’t be putting plastic waste in our waterways. A new project, however, is aimed at helping the environment by doing so … in a roundabout way of speaking. The participants plan on taking several artificial floating islands made from post-consumer plastic, planting papyrus on them, and then using them to help rebuild the ecosystem of Africa’s Lake Naivasha.

Very cool. It’s always nice to see creative solutions for problems, especially if we take a problem and turn it around to solve another one.

An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters. Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs. 

HOLY SHIT. I do not want to walk around those trees. Eugh. Sticky mess. Yet another example of habitat disruption and its consequences. I never did understand why some of my classmates felt like ecology and environmental science wasn’t important, especially since it almost seems like it’s the study of “things that will come and bite us back in the ass for our actions” a lot of the time…

Biology in Relation to Fish Medicine~

I said I would post up my research on the bacterial flora in my fish tank. So I suppose I will. If you’re not interested, here’s a pic of Fatty up there. Ah. He had such a perky dorsal fin and gorgeous caudal fin. orz

I'm nothing special. No really. I actually don't know why people listen to what I say. Though if you truly want to know more about me (Heaven forbid), you can ask me questions I suppose.

Also, if you can't tell, I happen to really like science, food, weird stuff, and learning. Have at it. And stay classy. p:
