2/3 The 1-acre plot was earlier used only for mangoes. So black gram, a nitrogen-fixer, was sown on the unused ground. This ground crop acted as shelter for several reptiles, amphibians, insects, an #EcologicalBenefit
3/3 The ground crop also prevented #SoilErosion to a certain extent. In addition, the harvested black gram meant a profit. Related video about a farmer who has attempted #agroforestry

@AgroBioCongress @MaximoTorero @PhrangRoy @tania_eulalia @FAO considers #IndigenousPeoples as key allies in eliminating hunger & malnutrition. Indigenous Peoples have unique systemic approaches to food systems, which hold important lessons for sustainability. - Dr. @MaximoTorero #EatGrowSave #Biodiversity
@AgroBioCongress @MaximoTorero @PhrangRoy @tania_eulalia @FAO Why are #IndigenousPeoples' #FoodSystems game changing? Because they are based on:
1. A holistic vision
2. Solidarity
3. Knowledge
4. Complex diets
5. Resilience
I encourage all to join the Coalition on Indigenous Peoples Food Systems

Have you read the @LancetCountdown’s new report on health and climate change? Check out @UHF_groups’ key takeaways 🧵👇
1) Climate change is impacting weather, #ecosystems, and human systems. This poses a threat to human #health. For example, young children, older people, and marginalized communities are more susceptible to health risks associated with high temperatures and #heatwaves.
2) High temperatures can reduce the frequency and duration of physical activity. Without #exercise, people are at a higher risk for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and other #NCDs.

1. Suppose an alien spaceship will land on earth next week.

After many light-years of travel through space, some friendly little green creatures decide to get out and stretch their legs on our planet.

What would they report home?

2. I guess their first description would be ecstatic.

Hidden in the fast, cold, and dark universe, they discovered a blue planet that brims with an incredible diversity of life, aided by ideal living conditions.

3. But:

Since the dawn of civilization, humanity has lost 83% of all wild mammals and half of all plants.

Of all the mammals on earth, 96% are livestock and humans, while only 4% are wild mammals.

Today, on #TheMisplacedMenagerie -

We report the exotic (for #India) apple #snail, #Pomacea diffusa, also known as the spike topped apple snail, from the #Mumbai region, as part of our ongoing studies on #urbanwildlife, and the #ecology of introduced species, in #India, Mumbai.
The study was officially published in the 'ELA Journal of Forestry and Wildlife' - a peer reviewed #science journal, which is also the official journal of the #Maharashtra State #Forest Department.

Spiked Topped Apple Snails in #Mumbai (and other parts of #India) are the direct result of the #aquarium trade - either as accidental, or deliberate releases from home aquaria.

This week at SFI: "#Complexity and the Structure of #Music: Universal Features and Evolutionary Perspectives Across Cultures", an #interdisciplinary working group assembled to explore new frameworks for understanding music. Stay tuned for highlights!

"Every pitch class set is connected to every other pitch class set."

– @mbnUNT, co-organizer of this week's #musicology working group, presents on how to understand the #topology of #harmonic structures in music with #network diagrams (e.g. Pic 4 with #JSBach's BWV 66):
Once you represent a musical composition as a network, it is possible to examine the evolutionary dynamics of its harmonic content over time, as explained by @mbnUNT in his opening talk for this week's SFI #musicology working group.

(Ironically, this #Beethoven is #scalefree:)
