When I came across this article tonight, I was immediately taken back to when I first learned about bioregions. These are areas bounded by natural rather than artificial borders that has characteristic flora and fauna and includes one or more ecosystems.
The article that took me there is entitled “Giant Panda Conservation Also Helps Other Unique Species in China” By John R. Platt over at Scientific American. I think it’s a perfect example of how much each and every species affects those around them. Sometimes it’s also nice to remember what got you where you’re going.
