  • "Environmental Science: The Importance of Biodiversity" 16 min. Series:K4488DVD from TMW Media Group TMW Media Group
    The astonishing growth of human population over the last 200 years has caused drastic and hopefully not irreversible damage to ecosystems worldwide. As we seek food, shelter, and natural resources, we damage the fragile balance of natural wildlife. If we continue at this pace, it is estimated 25% of the current species on Earth may become extinct in the near future. Biodiversity is crucial to sustaining life on Earth, and in this episode of Environment and Ecology, students learn about the efforts being made by scientists all over the world to maintain this vital biodiversity. - Teacher's Guide (PDF)

  • "Ecology: Understanding the Greenhouse Effect" Series:K4481DVD 13 min. from TMW Media Group TMW Media Group
    Ecology: Understanding The Greenhouse Effect The environment emits and absorbs carbon dioxide and other gases as part of normal biological and geological processes. Man, however, as a result of his agricultural and industrial activities, is adding to the carbon dioxide level in the atmosphere at an alarming rate - especially since the industrial revolution. Scientists believe the resulting greenhouse effect can cause significant climatic changes if we don’t step into action. In this episode of the Environment and Ecology Series, students learn about the greenhouse effect, its causes, its effects on global warming, and what scientists are doing about it. Includes animation and time-lapse photography, as well as suggestions for careers in this field of study. - Teacher's Guide (PDF)
