Live from Bad Boll – we’re all pitching in with the maintenance of our biodiversity path by our new laboratory.

Yesterday, we got an email from our colleague Stefan asking for some help clearing the Rumex acetosella – commonly called sheep’s sorrel. This is a slender, low-growing, hardy perennial with thick arrow-shaped leaves. The plant grows year-round and blossoms from May until September.
To preserve the biodiversity, we need to make sure that the long and strong roots of the sheep’s sorrel don’t take over and prevent other plants from developing. Our bees love having a wide variety of flowers from which to collect their nectar and pollen in order to make the best honey.
In the “Live Stories”, you can see how much care it took to remove them by hand and make sure not only to remove the plant on the surface but also the part beneath the soil, thus preventing the spread of roots and rhizomes that can resprout.

#Freesia caryophyllacea is a member of the #Iridaceae family. The genus consists of a total of 16 species and is endemic to Southern Africa. This species occurs on silcrete and shale derived soils in #OverbergRenosterveld and occasionally in #LimestoneFynbos from Worsley to Swellendam, Hermanaus and the Agulhas Plain. It flowers from April to June, usually about a month after the first winter rains. It is #NearThreatened on the #RedListofSouthAfricanPlants owing to extensive habitat transformation for agriculture.

Cortaderia selloana. Commonly known as Pampas grass. Turns out this shimmery silver beauty queen of grasses is an invasive species in South Africa. It invades river banks and seasonally wet habitats, forming clumps that displace smaller indigenous species and creating habitats that are lower in diversity. And we know that diversity in any ecosystem is crucial to stability and sustainability. #diversity #ecology #biodiversity #pampasgrass #cortaderiaselloana #parklife #momlife #emmarentia #johannesburg

Did you know that quinoa belongs to a species of plant called goosefoot and is botanically very similar to spinach?! So, technically quinoa is a seed not a grain! The leaves of the plant can be eaten like spinach and the seeds are used in the same way as grain.
Quinoa has a majestic history originating with the Incas in the mountains of Bolivia, Chile and Peru over 5,000 years ago.

Mustakurkku-uikku, Horned grebe
(Podiceps auritus)

It was breathtaking to see this threatened bird at my nearby lake. All in all there were three pairs of birds swimming with Common goldeneyes by the setting sun not careing busyness of the close by city. Calmness was interrupted every now and then only by Goldeneyes flying couple of rounds over the lake just to land beside of their friends.
Oli sykähdyttävää ensi kertaa elämässäni tavata tämä vaarantunut laji lähilammeltani. Kaikkiaan kolme paria uiskenteli yhdessä telkkien kanssa vailla tietoa läheisen kaupungin kiireistä ilta-auringon hiljalleen painuessa kohden horisonttia. Tyyneyden ja rauhan rikkoi ainoastaan aina välin lentoon lähtevä telkkä, joka kaartaessaan muutaman kierroksen lammen yllä laskeutui takaisin ystäviensä viereen.

呢隻係「黑斑陀弄蝶」,而家只係喺香港同越南有紀錄,大陸都冇㗎,係較罕見嘅品種。佢哋一年只係得一代,成蟲一般只喺5到6月出沒,其餘大部分時間都係以卵或幼蟲嘅形態出現,錯過咗就⋯⋯下年請早~

Fint foredrag af biolog Rikke Milbak om biodiversitet i haven. Bare fordi at en levende have med et rigere dyre og planteliv er en bedre have! Du kan være med til at skabe mangfoldighed i din have. Der findes en masse fine små gestus du kan gøre for din have og dens beboere hver dag. F.eks kan du bygge et insekthotel, plante blomster til bierne, bygge din egen havedam, lade "ukrudt" stå og en masse andre ting! Rikke delte hendes fine historier, ideer og blomsterfrø til alle deltagere.

Noisy Miner - Manorina melanocephala

Noisy Miners are particularly pugnacious honeyeaters. They noisily defend their ‘patch’ of trees from other birds, especially other species of honeyeaters which may be seen as competitors for the food resources, and these are vigorously chased away. Many other small birds are also driven from the area, and sometimes miners will even chase after cormorants or herons that may fly past, or harass them mercilessly if they perch somewhere in the miners’ territory. Because of this aggressive behaviour, areas inhabited by Noisy Miners often support few other birds. (Source: BirdLife Australia)

I love to photograph Australian wildlife and try bringing the captured wildlife closer to my audience. By showing these beautiful animals I hope to make the viewer aware of the fragility of nature and what we need to protect. •
Every day our planet loses about 200 species of plants, bird, and mammals.
I hope to capture a fraction of them before they are gone…

Disclaimer: No Wildlife baiting have been conducted on any animals in the wild. Although the majority of images are captured in the wild, a very small number of animals have been photographed at wildlife presentations, wildlife parks or zoos. •

È arrivato il momento all #orto di raccogliere anche gli ultimi #carciofi
Sapevate che il #carciofo è una pianta molto antica, conosciuta e sfruttata per le sue capacità benefiche. Infatti migliora le condizioni del fegato e della cistifellea e purifica il sangue. Le foglie essiccate possono essere utilizzate per la preparazione di #tè e #decotti funzionali alla perdita di grassi e all’eliminazione del #colesterolo cattivo nel sangue.

C'est là que commence le petit royaume de Corphalie, un site de grand intérêt biologique, un paradis pour la faune et la flore, à deux pas de chez moi mais où je n'ai jamais pu me promener. Je me console en l'admirant du train et en me disant que je vis près d'un petit paradis. "Le site de Corphalie est situé sur la rive gauche de la Meuse, en aval de Huy. Il occupe un versant rocheux très escarpé d'exposition sud. On y rencontre des friches et des pelouses calcicoles, des pelouses calaminaires, des mares temporaires, un ancien bassin de décantation, des forêts de pente, une buxaie, des rochers exposés, etc. Cette étonnante mosaïque de milieux est à l'origine de l'installation d'une flore et d'une entomofaune d'une richesse exceptionnelle, comprenant beaucoup d'espèces remarquables et souvent présentes en grande densités (papillons, orthoptères, etc.) "source : biodiversite.wallonnie.be #biodiversite #biodiversity #nature #environnement #écologie #ecology #wallonie

Satisfying greens.
Duckweed ready to harvest.
This tiny plant has potential to treat waster water, domestic and industrial.
It also provides high protein, which can be used as animal fodder. .
