Enter the fascinating world of water by setting up and nurturing your very own Ecosystem. This ecosystem kit shows how the natural water cycle works, with evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection taking place before your eyes.
You can sow seeds in your mini biosphere, make it rain, and watch the meadow plants grow. An illustrated manual explains how to use your ecosystem and helps you understand the natural processes at work in the water cycle, such as water vapour turning into rain. A water analysis kit is also included.

What happens when we think of our bodies as their own ecosystems? Are they open or closed ecosystems? Where do we draw the boundaries? Before we take medication, do we ask ourselves how it will affect our internal organs, our friendly bacteria? What is our medication's future, beyond our bodies, in the sewage system and out in the waterways we swim in and eventually drink? What are the possible futures of our personal waste? What do sentient ecosystems eat and drink?
Human urine is actually sterile (unlike faeces, it is bacteria-free) and it can be a rich food source if it gets into the right part of the right ecosystem. Now, most human urine travels untreated into the waterways and is a significant cause of eutrophication, a toxic condition caused by harmful algae blooms, in the oceans. The excess nitrogen and phosphorus in our urine overfeeds algae and suffocates fish.
