One of the most well-known and robust hypotheses linking household income and ecology, the luxury effect, suggests that urban biodiversity, and plant diversity in particular, is positively correlated with neighborhood wealth. This is particularly pronounced in arid ecoregions and biomes. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti…

The Cambrian Explosion was Biology's Big Bang. Life went from moving slowly on the sea floor without any predation to suddenly all the different ecologies that we find today. Life literally exploded. Some scientists believe that the evolution of vision triggered the evolutionary event. youtu.be/qNtQwUO9ff8

More than 130 years after Darwin suggested that a large moth pollinated an African orchid, his 1862 hypothesis was confirmed. Darwin had postulated the existence of an otherwise unknown species of insect based purely on the size of the flower and his understanding of evolution and ecology. theguardian.com/science/l…
According to a flat earth theory our forests are not "real", thousands of years ago, 99% of the Earth’s biosphere were destroyed, and the real forests were taken away. Real trees were hundreds of kilometres tall, magical organisms that sustained a total living ecology of the flat earth. theatlantic.com/science/a…
Today I learned about BastΓΈy Prison, Norway's island where the only residents are criminals (murderers, child molesters, etc).
