TERRA 701: Connecting the Gems

Wildlife biologist Gregg Treinish and filmmaker Deia Schlosberg hike 520 miles along one of the most important wildlife corridors in North America. The two adventurers seek to gain a better understanding of the health of the region from an animal's eye point-of-view by assessing habitat and by monitoring corridor usage, as well as barriers to movement and human-related development along the journey.

The Species Problem

These days the term 'species' is thrown around as if it were a definite unit, but the realities of defining a species are much trickier, and more contentious, than they seem. ;Biologists have argued over the definition of a species since the dawn of humanity, but have yet to come up with a single species concept that works for all types of life. This film explores current concepts used across the various fields of biology and covers some of the specific problems they encounter.

TERRA 439 PART TWO: Trouble in the Tropics: Invasive Lionfish

The invasive lionfish--venomous and voracious--has reached the tropical western Atlantic, where its reproductive rate is soaring. Invasive species expert, Lad Akins, of the Reef Environmental Education Foundation; along with College of the Bahamas marine science intern, Everton Joseph; and specimen collector for the Bermuda Aquarium, Chris Flook, team up in the waters of the Bahamas, where they dive, collect, tag and dissect, to better understand the invader in its new home. They'll run key field experiments, to identify potential controls, and assess the likely impacts of the invasion, on fragile reef ecosystems and ocean-based economies.

TERRA 203: ABALONE ODYSSEY PART TWO

First Nation inhabitants have depended upon marine resources for thousands of years in the Pacific Northwest. Now an important ecological and cultural symbol of sustainability, the pinto abalone, is being pushed to the brink of survival. But this community is responding - combining traditional knowledge, modern science, and old-fashioned elbow grease to challenge the forces of extinction. This grassroots effort is an inspiring micro-model for what could ultimately be done on a global scale.
