 I don't like to say "I know" (in that patronising way I hate myself when people do it to me)..... but I am happy to see that something I felt I knew has now been supported by scientific studies by the lovely people at Buglife - The Invertebrate Trust. They have released a guidance report to provide practical advice and inspire people to create biodiverse green roofs for wildlife.

"The report gives advice and guidance on how to design a roof for wildlife, including details on substrate choice and depth, which wildflowers to plant and how to create a variety of habitats such as wildflower meadows, bare ground, dead wood piles and bug hotels."

My personal experience with biodiversity: I used to sit and watch my front garden in Los Angeles for wildlife and I'd see many different types of birds coming to eat the seeds, aphids and other insect life. I'd have tons of pollinator bees and ladybirds. Compared to my neighbours front gardens, where they had just grass as far as the eye could see, my garden must have looked like a Whole Foods for local animals and insects.....

Follow the link above and you can download the report as well.

  1. what is scientific notation
    Scientific Notation include in the mathematics course. In the world of science some time we deal with numbers which are very small and those which are very large. In some branches of science large numbers while in others very small numbers are used.
