Help Us Spice Up AskNature
Sometimes the next best thing to seeing something in nature is seeing it in a photo or video.
AskNature has more than 1350 strategies to inspire sustainable innovation, but not all of them have photos. Since our first request to Help Us Spice Up AskNature in August 2010, we've gone from 42% to 56% having photos. Please help us bring that percentage even closer to 100%.
Below is a list of 10 organisms and what they do.
- Do you have photos or videos that can help someone understand the strategy?
- Do you have photos or videos that will help people visualize the organism?
- Are you interested in finding a great photo or video on Flickr, Wikimedia Commons, or YouTube to upload?
(some of these have videos, but we also need photos)
Plants: Xylem conduits transport water
Bromeliads: Epiphytes capture nutrients
Green pitcher-plant: Enzymatic liquid digests insects
Rajid skates: Electric organs generate volts

Wet prairie ecosystem: Environmental disturbance promotes diversity
Ground squirrel: Dikes prevent flooding
Polyxenid millipede: Detachable bristles immobilize ants
