Default Biodiversity. Lecture by Dr. Peter Raven (video)

http://www.worldtvpc.com/onlinevideosites/go.php?id=908

[Enter 'biodiversity' in site search box].

Quote:
From the Series:
Distinguished Leaders in Science

Produced by:
National Academy of Sciences
12/18/1999

Description:
Organisms all around us -- not only in the Amazon, but also in our own backyards -- are facing extinction. One out of every four species on Earth may face extinction during the first half of the next century, and as many as two out of three by its conclusion. Yet the diverse organisms on Earth protect our soils and waters, provide all of our food, most of our medicines -- and we are just starting to learn how to use them in new and unanticipated ways. The shape of the future -- how we live, what our opportunities may be -- depends on the actions we take now.


Speaker(s):
Dr. Peter Raven, director, Missouri Botanical Garden

Sorry the link does not go directly to the video.

Enter "Biodiversity" in the site search box.
When the title appears: Biodiversity: What does it mean for us
select connection - check on your connection speed: dial up or dsl/cable.

This should take you directly to the video.
