Gardeners Report high levels of happiness-Princeton Study
 
Gardeners also report high levels of meaningfulness, especially for vegetable gardening
 
Ornamental gardening less so
Female and low- income gardeners, who often have a hard lot in life, reported high emotional well-being
Solo gardeners were just as happy as those with buddies
 
A study by Princeton notes that home gardening "is largely overlooked by policymakers".
 
As cities seek to become more livable and environment-friendly, activities like urban gardening (household and  
community-gardening) are receiving much attention.
 
Home gardening contributes to a livable city and quality food initiatives.

Shami/Shammi trees in NCR area

Posted by Susan Sharma on August 16, 2018

 
Forum Post

The Delhi NCR area has an abundance of Keekar trees (Prosopis juliflora).  Fast growing tree it is, but the resin of the tree does not encourage other vegetatation around it.  Delhi seed bank and BNHS (Bombay Natural History Society) are undertaking a project to encourage Shami/Shammi (Khejri) or Prosopis cineria in the NCR area. 

"Shami Tree" festival was organized by the CEC, BNHS in Delhi on 29th July, 2018.  A tree plantation drive was also organized for ardent nature lovers who want to see Delhi turn into a green capital. It was a privilege to attend the festival.

This plantation drive was named as Shami tree festival to give importance to the Khejri tree (Prosopis cineria) also called as Shammi tree. 

Referred to as the golden tree of Indian deserts, the Khejri tree (Prosopis cineria) also called as Shami/Shammi tree, plays a vital role in preserving the ecosystem of arid and semi-arid areas. People down the ages have held this tree as sacred. In June, 1661, two women of Bishnoi community from Jodhpur district laid down their lives in protest against the cutting of khejri trees. Again in July, 1787, more than 300 people, including women and children, sacrificed their lives to save khejri trees from the King of Jodhpur.

The Wonder tree holds religious, cultural and medicinal significance.

Khejri tree provides shelter and protection to animals and birds in desert areas. This tree is home to many large birds like kites, hawks and vultures.Many Rajasthani families use the green and unripe pods (known as sangri) in preparation of curries and pickles. The importance of the medicinal value of shami tree has been highlighted in our ancient literature.

Biodiversity Model

Biodiversity

 

Biodiversityis the degree of variation of life forms within a given species, ecosystem,biome, or planet. Terrestrial biodiversity tends to be highest at low latitudesnear the equator, which seems to be the result of the warm climate and highprimary productivity. Marine biodiversity tends to be highest along coasts inthe Western Pacific, where sea surface temperature is highest and in mid-latitudinalband in all oceans. Biodiversity generally tends to cluster in hotspots, andhas been increasing through time but will be likely to slow in the future.

 

Theperiod since the emergence of humans has displayed an ongoing biodiversityreduction and an accompanying loss of genetic diversity. Named the Holoceneextinction, the reduction is caused primarily by human impacts, particularlyhabitat destruction. Conversely, biodiversity impacts human health in a numberof ways, both positively and negatively.

 

TheUnited Nations designated 2011-2020 as the United Nations Decade onBiodiversity.

 

Backgroundof Project Biodiversity Park

 

I have beena student of Natural Science for more than two decades. It started when I wentto my undergraduate college in 1997 to study Botany and it’s still on when I amearning my livelihood as an Environmental Professional. Being a student ofnatural science I wanted to pay tribute to Mother Nature and I have chosen todo it by making replica of different terrestrial biodiversity model throughoutthis entire decade designated for Biodiversity.

 

Underthis project I have decided to make following seven different models withreplica of different animal species and their natural habitat:

 

1.    Mountain Forest

2.    Rain Forest

3.    Savanna Forest

4.    Polar Biodiversity

5.    Desert Biodiversity

6.    Countryside Farmhouse and

7.    Jurassic Park

 

Thisreport describes all the above mentioned models. All the information in thisreport is taken from Wikipedia, myfavourite website. In this report the first photographs of every chapter are ofmy hand made models and second photographs are taken from various websites.

 

Theanimal replicas are the products of Naturepavillionand scenic materials are bought from Woodlandscenicsand other regular local craft shops.

I have already made first three models and they are available for display in face book (https://www.facebook.com/arnab.basu.773/media_set?set=a.740265559317395.1073741828.100000018743674&type=1)

Save the gene pool - " I want to change the world - Nothing is Impossible "

Save The Gene Pool - " I want to change the world - Nothing is Impossible "

Emerging from the Gene Pool : Experience Life

A large gene pool indicates high genetic diversity, increased chances of biological fitness, and survival. A small gene pool indicates low genetic diversity, reduced chances of acquiring biological fitness, and increased possibility of extinction. 


Gene pool increases when mutation occurs and survives. Gene pool decreases when the population size is significantly reduced (e.g. famine, genetic disease, etc.). Some of the consequences when gene pool is small are low fertility, and increased probability of acquiring genetic diseases and deformities. 

Gene pool gives an idea of the number of genes, the variety of genes and the type of genes existing in a population. It can be used to help determine gene frequencies or the ratio between different types of genes in a population.
