We’re pleased to present you with an issue focusing on The Power of Biology!


Plants and animals, obviously, provide us with the food we eat. But have you ever paused to consider all the other ways that living things help us every day? We all know that trees convert carbon dioxide to oxygen; some crops fix much-needed nitrogen in the soil; houseplants freshen the air in our homes; birds, bats and possums, among many other animals, control some of the peskier insect populations; earthworms aerate and enrich the soil and our compost heaps. Biological processes are the foundation of our lives, and the list of interactions and positive impact is endless.

In this issue you’ll find all sorts of exciting articles and ideas about the biological processes that you may never have stopped to consider.
