Natures Talk Shows Fine art of Paleontology topic will be about Burgess Shale and the fascinating fossils discovered within. The Burgess Shale was discovered by palaeontologist Charles Walcott on 30 August 1909,towards the end of the season’s fieldwork. He returned in 1910 with his sons, daughter, and wife, establishing a quarry on the flanks of Fossil Ridge. The significance of soft-bodied preservation, and the range of organisms he recognised as new to science, led him to return to the quarry almost every year until 1924. At that point, aged 74, he had amassed over 65,000 specimens. Describing the fossils was a vast task, pursued by Walcott until his death in 1927. Walcott, led by scientific opinion at the time, attempted to categorise all fossils into living taxa, and as a result, the fossils were regarded as little more than curiosities at the time. It was not until 1962 that a first-hand reinvestigation of the fossils was attempted, by Alberto Simonetta. This led scientists to recognise that Walcott had barely scratched the surface of information available in the Burgess Shale, and also made it clear that the organisms did not fit comfortably into modern groups.

Habitats – African Veldt

Airing On Sunday
September 25th 2016

8:00 pm eastern, 7:00 pm central and 5:00 pm pacific

Habitats are so wonderful and unique. Join Ken B and Ken M as they discuss the Habitat of the African Veldt and the amazing animals and plants found there. The savannah and veldt make up the central part of Africa in a band across the continent and down the middle into South Africa. Some of the countries with savannah are Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Botswana, and South Africa.

The cheetah is the fastest land animal in the world, but it cannot run that fast for long. The lions hunt differently than the cheetah. Members of the pride work together to scare a herd of grazing animals, while a lionesses hides in the tall grass waiting to ambush a passing zebra or gazelle. When the animal is dead, the lions take turns feeding on it and guarding it while others in the pride rest or go off to drink. Jackals and hyenas are mostly scavengers, feeding on animals that are already dead. Waiting until the big cats have eaten their fill, the jackals and hyenas move in to eat what is left over. They may even scan the sky for circling turkey vulture, other scavengers, that signal an animal nearby has died. Sometimes a big group of hyenas will steal a kill from a lion or kill an animal themselves. With few trees to slow them down, animals can run great distances on the veldt. Theostrich’s seven-foot height and good eyesight give it a great advantage in seeing predators from far off. If danger is spotted, it runs! Animals on the veldt often travel in large herds. The more there are to watch and sniff the air for danger, the safer they are. That is why it is not unusual to see herds of ostriches, zebras, gazelles, and wildebeests traveling together. Living in groups is also a good way to search for food and teach the young. The termite is one of Africa’s smaller animals, but it builds its home so large that they can be seen all across the savanna. The dung beetle builds its round nest in the droppings of other animals. Then it lays its eggs inside. As the offspring develop, they eat their way out of the nest. A common bird of the savanna is the weaverbird. Using long stems of grass, they weave great hanging nests. On the ground the secretary bird, named for its black-and-white suit and quill-like head feathers, hunts for mice and snakes to eat. From above, the brown harrier eagle circles, scanning the hot African plain. As always, life here is a race to find food without becoming someone else’s meal.

There are few trees on the African plain, just some acacia, baobab and palm trees, among plenty of grass. Cheetahs view the vast plain from the branches of the acacia tree. A thirsty elephant tears apart a baobab tree to eat the spongy, moist inner wood.

Paleontology – Sternberg and Walcott

Paleontology – Sternberg and Walcott
On Monday September 19th join Ken B. and Ken M. as they discuss two early paleontologists. Walcott was born in New York. His grandfather, Benjamin S. Walcott, moved from Rhode Island in 1822. His father, also Charles Doolittle Walcott, died when Charles Jr. was only two. Walcott was the youngest of four children. He was interested in nature from an early age, collecting minerals and bird eggs and, eventually, fossils.

Sternberg?s older brother, Dr. George M. Sternberg (1838?1915) was a military surgeon assigned to Fort Harker near Ellsworth, Kansas, and brought the rest of the Sternberg family to Kansas to live on his ranch about 1868. Once there, Charles became interested in collecting fossil leaves from the Dakota Sandstone Formation. In the 1870s, he studied at Kansas State under the noted paleontologist Benjamin Franklin Mudge, but he soon left school in order to spend more time in the field.

Green Scene – Cycads #2 (the Genus Cycas)

Green Scene – Cycads #2 (the Genus Cycas)
Natures Talk Show The Green Scene will be discussing how to grow and care for the amazing Cycas.Cycas and cycas plant species are closely related to Cycas revoluta (Sago Palm or King Sago), the most popular cycad plant. Cycas are native to Asia, Pacific Islands, Australia and Africa (one species). Popular Cycas species include Cycas revoluta, Cycas taitungensis (Emperor Sago), Cycas panzhihuaensis (Blue Mountain Sago) and Cycas debaoensis (Multipinnate Cycas).

The name Cycas comes from Koikas, Greek for palm, and Cycas are the most palm-like cycads. A beautiful distinguishing feature of Cycas is its new leaflets, which emerge coiled and then slowly unfurl.
