Please scroll down for lots of useful information. There are links to industry and environmental journals, relevant dates in the environmental and renewable energy calendar, current debates, a solar PV Feed-in Tariff calculator, green products websites, campaign groups and more. Some of this might be a bit outdated given time considerations and the fact that I don't get paid for doing this, but I do try and keep it as fresh and new as I can so it's still worth checking out.

  1. Daphnia. An example of Daphnia, commonly known as a water flea. Daphniids are important grazers of algae and are eaten by fish, waterfowl, and macroinvertebrates. Because Daphnia are sensitive to environmental conditions, including contaminant levels, they are used worldwide in toxicology and ecological studies. The arrow points to the body part (postabdominal claw) that is often recovered as a "sedimentary remain" in lake sediment cores. Image courtesy of Kim Lemmen (Queen's University).
