Nature’s Beauty Book Online

For the love of birds Washington Wachira wants us all to get to know the marvelous
species of birds that share the planet with us. If you’re not already a fan of earth’s feathermakers—or concerned about their conservation—you will be after you watch this delightful talk.
Stunning photos of the endangered Everglades For centuries, people have viewed swamps and wetlands as obstacles to avoid. But for photographer Mac Stone, who documents the stories of wildlife in Florida’s Everglades, the swamp isn’t a hindrance—it’s a national treasure. Through his stunning photographs, Stone shines a new light on a neglected, ancient and important wilderness.
The beautiful tricks of flowers In this visually dazzling talk, Jonathan Drori shows the extraordinary ways flowering plants—over a quarter million species—have evolved to attract insects to spread their pollen: growing “landing-strips” to guide the insects in, shining in ultraviolet, building elaborate traps, and even mimicking other insects in heat.

TED Talks offer knowledge and inspiration from the world’s foremost thinkers in video presentations online for free. Join educator Tom Lowrey on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month during lunch to watch a TED talk (typically 10-20 minutes each) and participate in lively discussion about the ideas presented. As always, we hold TED Talks to generate discussion and thought. The views expressed by TED speakers do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Senior Services or its employees.
