Egypt's Red Sea Sharks Face Extinction

Egypt's Red Sea Sharks Face Extinction | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

Arab Spring in Egype has been a failure for sharks. Since last year’s political uprising, and consequent deterioration of law enforcement, poachers supplying restaurants with illicit shark fins have driven the Red Sea shark population down by as much as 80 percent. The scenario without the top-feeder sharks is a downward spiral of ecological destruction.

Seed Banks Contain Memory, But Not Enough Against GMOs

Seed Banks Contain Memory, But Not Enough Against GMOs | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

LEBANON harbors over 2600 plant species of which 119 are counted to be endemic. The unique climatic and landscape diversity in Lebanon has shaped 22 bio-climatic zones which fosters one of the most precious ecological services: genetic diversity.

Unfortunately, the conservation of biodiversity in Lebanon is increasingly at risk due the largely uncontrolled and unidentified introduction of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) in the domestic market and the absence of national policies that specifically outline biosafety legislation.

World Rivers Review: Focus on Biodiversity - December 2011

World Rivers Review: Focus on Biodiversity - December 2011 | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

River ecosystems are in trouble, which means we’re all in trouble. This special issue of World Rivers Review focuses on biodiversity and rivers. As International Rivers’ executive director Jason Rainey writes in the commentary, “We’re losing life forms that have the ability to nourish us, keep our water clean, produce breathable air and fertile soil, and ultimately make our planet the amazing place it is. If we don’t protect our biological richness and diversity, we undercut the re-generative capacity of the Earth, we undermine the prospect of life creating the conditions conducive to life.”

Lexicon of Sustainability: Biodiversity vs. monoculture

Lexicon of Sustainability: Biodiversity vs. monoculture | Biodiversity IS Life  – #Conservation #Ecosystems #Wildlife #Rivers #Forests #Environment | Scoop.it

And so we, "Grist", begin a weekly series of artistically altered images from around the sustainable food world. First up: biodiversity on the farm.

 

Industrial agriculture = monoculture. Small farms = biodiversity.

Small, organic farms like Rick Knoll's are able to eliminate their reliance on petrochemical-based fertilizers and pesticides. The results are fewer pollutants, less environmental degradation, and cleaner air. And by using cover cropping and other soil fertilization principles they are able to sequester carbon and keep topsoil -- which is carbon heavy -- from being lost into the atmosphere (the latter also contributes to climate change).

 

Biodiversity = Weeds + trees + crops + critters + soil = An integrated food web allowing biota to self-regulate = A self-regulating, multi-layered farm that requires little maintenance and no pesticides.

Water and forest is interrelated to each other. Forests feed rivers and from them we use for our live. Thus, can we live without water and forest?

Every year 13 million hectares of forest are destroyed because of political corruptions, greed, wealth, development and agriculture. Here is the list of world’s capital cities around the world. All of them depend on water and all of them located near the water sources.

Permaculture is defined as the design and maintenance of agriculturally productive systems that have the diversity, stability and resilience of natural ecosystems. It basically looks at growing in a holistic framework which promotes sustainability, the conservation of resources and biodiversity.
