Notes: The videos are select examples of over 330, mostly half-hour, educational television shows that we had produced, though some were of subsequent research initiatives. They are kindly hosted on the YouTube. The `knowledge' in most of these videos is as current today as it was when they were produced. Click on the web links which are a subtle change in colour; In most cases, the photos/icons can be clicked upon as well in order to launch the videos.

(.............. in memory of our dearly departed associate, Peter Shacklock, a research biologist. Peter, using his own electronic equipment, had digitized select videos from our 3rd and 4th generation SVHS television tapes)

...... though we prefer that proponents carry out end-of-the-pipe total stormwater treatment as far as possible, but John's promotion of community stewardship empowers the individual. A combination of the two would be the most desirable.

Freshwater Benthic Ecology

"Biomonitoring is the systematic use of living organisms or their responses to determine the quality of the environment. Water pollution is essentially a biological problem. Chemical measurements are like taking snapshots of the ecosystem, whereas biological measurements are like making a videotape. The ultimate purpose of environmental assessment and regulation is the maintenance of biological integrity, ..................." -- Prof. David M. Rosenberg PhD, Univ. of Manitoba and the Freshwater Institute, DFO, Winnipeg. (cf. Bull. Entomol. Soc. Can. 1998. 30(4):144-152.)
