The Ecology Series set includes five titles exploring plants and animals in relation to their environment. Land Above the Trees: In late June, when spring arrives in Canada's alpine regions, the different alpine zones--the meadow, the treeline, and the tundra--teem with life (19 min. 25 sec.). The Intertidal Zone: The ecology of the coastal area of British Columbia covered by the highest tides and exposed during the lowest. Adaptations to this difficult environment, as well as its life cycles and food chains are detailed (16 min. 58 sec.). The Temperate Rain Forest examines the special characteristics, including the life cycle and food chain, of the northwest coastal rain forest, a specialized plant community with an abundance of amphibians and reptiles (16 min. 30 sec.). Estuary demonstrates the importance of the estuary, its environmental function, the natural forces that control it, and its particular ecology. Microphotography shows tiny creatures hunting and eating their prey (11 min 30 sec.). Photographed in Vancouver, Wild in the City explores the extent and variety of wild animals and birds that have adapted to and can survive in an urban environment (16 min. 12 sec.).
