Lectures we have done over the years have linked geology to various aspects of ecology, namely, how the geology yields certain soils, which in turn grows certain plants, which in turn attract certain animals. So what animals you see in the wild are a result of the geology there. Pretty cool! Another angle is how the animals attracted alter the terrain which then leads to changes in geology. This interplay of geology-soil-plants-animals or geology-microclimate-plants-animals is often overlooked, underestimated, or not even noticed . On this page we will add lectures/other materials that might bring clarity to the geology-ecology theme and/or relate to it.
