Short Attention Span Science Theater

Got no time? Can't stand long-winded explanations? Microdocs is for you!

Thanks to a heads up from blogfish, check out these 2-4 minute microdocs on marine issues on Stanford University's website. It has quick videos, short notes on sustainability, species on coral reefs and solutions around the world.

Billed as "The Short Attention Span Science Theater on Ecological Sustainability", some topics include

Sustainability on coral reefs
  • how reefs protect the land
  • reefs & resorts
  • the sea is green
  • little fish
  • crown-of-thorns
  • how much reef do you need
  • it really sucks being a tuna

  • reef structure
  • manta ray
  • the solar powered clam
  • life cycle of the conch
Solutions around the world
