Science Help Needed

I’ve been spending hours over the past week pouring over national geographic articles and wikipedia pages on biomes, ecosystems, and geography for worldbuilding, but with very little success.

Specifically, I need help figuring out what climates and biomes would occur in relation to the ones around it. Questions like “what sort of forests would occur near mountains,” “do grasslands appear near forests or is there some sort of transition area,” “how would a plateau affect the nearby ecosystems,” etc.

If anyone is a environmental science nerd, expert, or even simply took a class on it recently and would be able to help me out, I could really use a hand here. It took me ages to get just the mountains, rivers, and coastlines to make geologic sense, and at this point, my brain is starting to hurt. I’m a history/anthropology nerd; I can tell you how the environment affects the people and civilizations all day long, but how the environment would have actually developed? Not so much.

Hawks and the Impending Cardinalpocalypse

Finally saw some Hot Hawk Action! I was watching a frenzy of house sparrows destroy my window feeders (I try to keep the sparrows in the bushes), and I was wondering if I should disturb the other birds to move the sparrows back, even if it was almost dusk. I was just about to leave and grab the bird seed when the birds all freak out, and WHOOOSH hawk wings BRUSH AGAINST MY WINDOW before I realize what is happening, and then I see the familiar banded tail facing me from the fence. It’s the Sharp-shinned! And for once, not eating! He tried a couple times to get at a female cardinal who took refuge in a crape myrtle bush (which I do NOT trim, and which the birds LOVE to eats the seeds out of!), but he couldn’t reach her. Eventually, dispirited, he flew off empty-taloned.

The cardinal was in the bush closest to the house, so I could see that the hawk was TINY!!! Like, maybe only twice as large as the cardinal.

I was wondering why the cardinal didn’t fly off to the neighbor’s orange tree with the rest of the flock. But when I went out to fill the feeders, there was a small spot of blood on the side of the house, so she may have been injured.

It also reminds me: I had found a clump of feathers in the yard, unmistakably from the belly of a lady cardinal. I was very sad (fun fact though, a spider had moved into the feather clump and was using it as a hide!), but a few days later, I saw a female cardinal pigging out at the feeders. She had a bald spot on her belly.

These cardinals, I tell you. Last year, I had one bonded pair. One male, one female. They had an uncountable number of chicks—uncountable because they utilized quantum tunneling and alternate dimensions to pop in and out of existence for the sole purpose of terrorizing thirsty cotton mice.

They disappeared for a season and returned en masse, with their mates, their mates’ siblings, and their mates’ siblings’ mates (and on and on…). They are still hard to count, but my best attempts are: 11 females, 14 males. The actual numbers are higher.

I don’t know how many hawks I will need before I start having cardinals nesting in my walls (j/k that’s the house sparrows and they ALREADY DO THAT ugh), but this sure is interesting.

Coral reefs are a popular pit stop for lots of marine critters, such as these manini, or convict tang, in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. The fish graze on algae that covers the corals, meanwhile the corals get a free cleaning. Not a bad deal!

I didn’t expect to love this place

I’ve undergone a lot of feelings towards the Sonoran desert after being transplanted here a decade ago from a small farm town in central Washington. On the lengthy, three day road-trip snaking across the western United States in a navy blue Silverado truck packed with a family of four, a middle-aged cat and an adolescent shih-tzu, I was super excited. I couldn’t wait to break loose of my small town chains, explore the Wild West and see what a new state had to offer. However, not seeing much of the world outside of my tiny town and not thinking to Google Glendale, Arizona before heading out of town, I was under the impression that it would look like this:

But on a much larger, you know, city scale. When really, it looked like this:

Which was a-okay with me. I took light-rails and buses to school. I went to ginormous local, public libraries with desert landscapes and roadrunners darting about. I loved it for quite a while, but about mid-high school I was growing real tired of the dull environmental palette of browns and tans. I missed the greenery of Washington and was determined to escape the hole of a desert.

After college, I moved to northern Arizona — a vastly different place than the Phoenix metropolitan area. Here there were trees with leaves that changed colors, grasses and green plant life, squirrels, colorful cherry blossoms, and forested mountains — all things that I was very used to growing up.

This was great until around winter time when I missed citrus season and in the spring when I sorely missed the smell of blooming acacia trees. After realizing how much I longed for the desert, I moved back to the valley with a new-found appreciation for the desert ecosystem and ecology. 

I was thinking

wow the Sonoran desert is actually an incredibly diverse ecological landscape

The Sonoran desert stretches across about half of Arizona, southern California, Baja California, and Sonora, Mexico.It’s one of the most ecologically diverse and balanced deserts in the world. It’s the only place where giant saguaros grow and where you can be fined $10,000 for transplanting this cacti without the proper license (we’re serious about our cacti). We have things that will kill you, things that are super cute, river tubing, red rocks, giant geological holes, 120 degree temperatures and snow.

What in the world is this place?

Guess who’s coming out of hibernation?
Giant Leopard Moth caterpillars are waking up!

Time for them to pupate! I have no idea how/where they do it, so I guess in a few weeks I’ll just see Giant Leopard Moths EVERYWHERE because this was a real good season for the caterpillars, holy carp, they were everywhere.

———-

I have been fairly quiet because I have a BIG EXAM on Friday I didn’t start studying for until uhhhh four days ago?? (It’s the PMP exam, not an exam for a class, because 16 years of college was enough thanks j/k I’d go back for an ento PhD in a heartbeat but those darn letters of recommendation *sigh*). After the exam, two weeks of work left before I’m unemployed ;_; Not sure if that means I’ll have a lot less free time (running around madly doing odd-jobs and studying for more and more certifications), or a lot more free time (depending on the pay-rate of the odd-jobs, unemployment benefits might be a better deal, and even with those I’m only “allowed” to earn a whole $250 a week before they reduce my benefits (oh boy!)).

But fun news: My tiny 0.10 acre yard ecosystem is healthy enough it supports predators. There are at least three different hawks who I have seen and photographed (will post later) IN my yard. The Sharp-shinned Hawk, both times I’ve seen him, has been EATING!! The Cooper’s Hawks have perched on the fence, looked around, and then flown off very disappointed.

I’ve had the Great Horned Owls for a while, presumably eating my mice, but I just hear them, I’ve never seen them.

Maybe this year I’ll start getting the BIG SNAKES.

[02.09.19] I love it when professors put the lecture slides online so I don’t have to worry so much about getting as much information off the slide as possible before they switch it. Usually it’s when I rush when taking notes is when I make mistakes. I want to try and take these notes before class in a cornell style by making a blah on the left side, but I really don’t have time to do that :/
