Summary
The biosphere reserve coordinator in North Devon, England, wants people to know that a biosphere is not an arcane experiment conducted under a dome, but a living lab where environmental changes are studied with the goal of resolving conflicts between humans and nature. This program looks at the economic realities of two distinct populations that share similar ecological problems by visiting biospheres in the U.K., where shore areas are threatened by increasing sea levels, and in Kenya, where development endangers coastal habitats. It's more than the beauty of salt marshes and coral reefs that is threatened by rising tides; it's the life of communities as well
