THE MICROWORLD OF THE NATURAL POOLS IN THE CIRCEO NATIONAL PARK
In the Circeo National Park, there are some depressions that are periodically flooded due to the accumulation of rainwater or the outcrop of the surface aquifer that form natural pools. The flooded area represents the most evocative environments of this plain forest. Around the pools, or where there is less water, the dominant tree is the oak while within the pools ash trees are dominant. It is also the habitat for a great variety of animals that live in a hidden and often unknown microworld: crustaceans (pill-bugs in dry areas, Triops and Artemia in the water), millipedes, annelids and insects.
CARING FOR PIP
Pip has not eaten for a long time. This can be natural for a large snake but Pip’s keeper, Tom, noticed also that she is displaying some strange and alarming behaviours. So, the vets of the Ashleigh Centre arrange an exam to identify what is going wrong.

CAPUCHIN MONKEYS @ EXPO
Il 26 Settembre all'Expo di Milano si parlerà di mele e preferenze alimentari dei cebi dai cornetti. La scoperta del gusto della mela può partire addirittura dalle scelte alimentari delle scimmie, Primati come noi, che possono aiutarci a comprendere le basi biologiche delle scelte alimentari, prima che quelle culturali comincino a giocare un ruolo fondamentale. Potremo così capire come si sviluppano le preferenze personali, le abitudini alimentari e perchè certi cibi sono "tentacolari".
THE BEARDED CAPUCHIN MONKEYS OF FAZENDA BOA VISTA
This scientific documentary focuses on the behaviour of wild tool using bearded capuchin monkeys living in Fazenda Boa Vista (Gilbués, Piauí State, Brazil). The research on this field site, located in the ecotone between Cerrado and Caatinga, has been carried out by an international team of senior researchers from Brazil, United States and Italy that launched the EthoCebus Project in 2005 (see http://www.ethocebus.net). This project investigates the ecology, foraging, social and cognitive behaviour of capuchin monkeys.
