Thank you @IWS_Network for giving me the opportunity to share my #story 💜 ! This a part of Voices Without Frontiers program iwsnetwork.ca/voices-without… #IWS #WomenInSTEM #VoicesIWS #ecology #conservation #biodiversity
I was born in #saopaulo, #Brazil’s largest city, very different from the #Amazon Rainforest & Rio! See me and a #samauma, the most famous Amazon tree 🌳
Also me & @IsabelaHissa in front of Sao Paulo’s #MASP (Modern Art Museum) & me and my mom in #Rio! #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Image
I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

2. Traditions can alienate you if you don't feel part of it. So in my efforts to blend in with the Canadians, I searched the internet to explain #Halloween and found that we have to go back into history as I so often do in The Planet newsletter.

3. There was not much of #Halloween celebration in colonial New England, where rigid Protestant beliefs prevented frivolously celebrating, especially of traditions with some doubtful pre-Christian fingerprints all over it.

2. When male jumping spiders flirt with females, they risk losing their lives.

This is a mating dance, but she is not interested and he escapes with his life, because often females will eat their lover after sex.

Today's #DailySpider is the brown recluse, Loxosceles reclusa (family Sicariidae).

These secretive, six-eyed #spiders are almost certainly the most feared & misunderstood in North America. brown, six-eyed spider with violin-shaped dark mark on its head, sitting on a rock
Spiders in the genus #Loxosceles* are considered medically important because their venom can be harmful to humans (unlike that of the vast majority of other spiders).

*There are several species in North America. Pictured here: the Arizona recluse (L) & Big Bend recluse (R). brown spider with 6 black eyes and dark violin marking on head sitting on rockclose up of lighter brown spider with 6 dark eyes (in 3 pairs) and violin-shaped marking on head
Recluse spiders are not aggressive. They do not go around looking for people to bite. They feed on insects & other arthropods, not human blood. #DailySpider brown recluse spider with red-eyed fruit fly (Drosophila) in its jaws, sitting on a rock
