    Mangroves of Australia - Biotopes

    in Environment

    Mangroves of Australia - Biotopes on Natures Talk Shows Biotopes Series will be the topic of discussion.

    Mangroves are vascular plants, that is they have a well-developed system of conducting tissue to transport water, mineral salts and sugars. They are found in the intertidal zone where they are flooded by tides. Mangroves are plants that live between the sea and the land, where they are flooded by tides. This is called the intertidal zone. The word 'mangrove' is given to either an individual species or to a group of unrelated plants, living in areas that are flooded by tides.

    They grow as trees up to medium height and shrubs in saline (pure seawater (3% to 4%), to water concentrated by evaporation to over twice the salinity of ocean seawater (up to 9%). They grow in the tropics and subtropics – mainly between latitudes 25°N and 25°S in sheltered areas like estuaries, river banks and marine shorelines. They may also grow in protected temperate coastal areas.

    Australia has around 980,000 hectares of mangrove forests, which is less than 1% of Australia’s total forest cover.

    They grow in the soft mud between the half tide and the high tide mark. Part of the root system (pneumatophores) are always above the ground level and are able to take in oxygen during low tide as the soil they grow in does not contain any dissolved oxygen.

    They use salt water as a source of water for transpiration and exclude most of the salt from that water and excrete or store excess salt..

    On Tuesday November 24th at 9pm est,8pm cst and 6pm pst. We look forward to you joining us. If you would like to join the conversation visit our chat room on our web page or call in to our studio number

    Military Monday with John D. Gresham and USMC University' Christopher David Yung

    in Current Events

    While most of the world is nervously watching terrorism news from Europe, Africa, and Southwest Asia, savvy analysts and military professionals are watching the Western Rim of the Pacific region where tensions with the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) have been rising. Within a region known as the "9 Dash Line." China has been building a series of small island bases that include sensors, armed garrisons, along with airfields capable of operating fighters and large transport aircraft. Many observers see this as an act of regional aggression by the PRC, and have begun to react directly to Chinese harassment of aircraft and ships operating in what they consider "international waters." Most recently, the United States has begun to conduct "Freedom of Navigation" operations around these islands, arousing both anger and strong verbal reactions by the Chinese. The question is, is this a possible path to war? Or simply standing up to a PRC which has developed bullying tendencies over the past several decades?

    To learn more about what is happening in the South China Sea, tune into this week's edition of Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday on the Writestream Radio Network (@Writestream)) at 1 PM EST. Author, historian, journalist, documentary filmmaker, and host John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) along with U.S. Marine Corps University chair and U.S. Naval Institute author Christopher David Yung will discuss the situation inside the 9-Dash Line, and what might happen in the near future regarding these vital waters. Listners are encouraged to call in, and offer questions and opinions on this important situation.

Dan Willis is a former homicide investigator and SWAT commander who has developed wellness programs and specializes in providing emotional survival and wellness training to first responders throughout the country. He is a graduate of San Diego State University and the FBI National Academy. He lives in San Diego, CA.

    Wanda's Picks Radio Show

    1. Byb Chanel Bibene, director, Kiadanda Dance Theater, joins us to talk about his latest work, "Oyo Biso-Spirits of the Garden at EastSide Arts Theatre, Nov. 7-8, 8 p.m. Oyo is a part of Nava Dance Theatre, the theme: Artists in Reponse to State Violence and Gentrification. 

    Bibene is a choreographer and performer working in theater and contemporary dance. His work often includes a sense of actual place and/or performed on location. An excerpted Oyo premiered, Sept. 2015, as a part of SF Trolley Dances. Bibene says the Nava version has the same vocabulary, with different music, added poetry and another dancer.  It is going to be interesting to see how the work is adapted and expanded to fit an enclosed space. How does one's garden grow philosophically when the plain is disappeared or evaporating or just too small to hold the concept?

    In San Francisco, the setting was a large community garden smack in the middle of Bayview Hunter's Point, (Third & Palou), the corner a busy throughfare. Yet, when we stepped into the sanctuary all was suspended. Bibene's technical and aesthetic sensibility, rooted in the culture and dances of his country of origin, Democratic Republic of the Congo, are evident. Africa travels with him aesthtically as iconic references of the transport and dislocations -- both physicially and spiritually, show up in the soil of his movement, memories carried within the bodies of his company dancers, who, specifically in "Oyo" move and are moved in surprising ways. The inclusion of silences within the landscape also allow spirit to hover just within reach. It was pretty amazing, as will be its revisioning this weekend.
