About the Science
- Describes how succulent plants in the South African Karoo biome are being impacted by recent changes to the climate that make it difficult for these plants to survive.
- Comments from expert scientist: This is a nice synopsis of the Karoo Biome and how climate change is impacting the succulents in this environment. It also has a helpful explanation of the impacts of the environment on the society that depends on it in terms of impacts on disease, agriculture, and water availability. Though Midgley's model is mentioned early in the video, there is no link to the data or references to find more information.
About the Pedagogy
- Good quality of explanation and relevant illustrations. Key point: prior infrastructure planning was based on "normal" climate.
