croxfiber's joke
A boy at the age of 13 years old, known as Joe, burst into the house, crying. His mother asked him what the problem was
Joe - Daddy and I were fishing and he hooked a giant fish. Really big! Then, while he was reeling it in, the line busted and the fish got away..
His mother - Come on Joe, a big boy like you shouldn't be crying about an accident like that. You should have just laughed it off
Joe - That's just what I did, mommy! daddy was mad & shouted at me..

what is an ecosystem?
it consists of interdependent communities of plants, animals, microscopic organisms & physical environment. all these different elements interact & form a complex whole, with properties that are unique to that particular combination of living & non living elements

energy flow & material cycles

ecosystem boundaries are generally delineated by climate: desert ecosystems in the subtropics, tropical rainforest ecosystems near the equator & tundra ecosystems near the poles

distribution of biomes (biome is used to describe a major vegetation type such as tropical rain forest, grassland, tundra etc, extending over a large geographic area)

as climates have changed in the geologic past, ecosystems have shifted in response but past climate changes were slower than the projected future changes

climate patters affect biome distributions

aquatic ecosystems

why we need wetlands?

wetlands provide an important service to our surroundings. storm waters flowing into a wetland lose energy & spread out across a broad area, thus reducing flooding downstream. furthermore, sediment & contaminants, such as iron & acidity from mine runoff & nitrogen from farm fertilizers, are removed as water percolates through wetlands before entering our drinking & irrigation water

wetlands are also biologically diverse ecosystems, providing home for endangered species and a refuge for migrating birds. this make them ideal places for hiking, bird watching, canoeing & fishing

worth saving
ecosystems are valuable to humanity because they assist us with:
provisions: food (seeds, fruits, game, spices); fiber (wood, textiles); medical & cosmetic products (dyes, scents)

environmental regulations: climate & water regulations; water & air purification, carbon sequestration; protection from natural disasters, disease & pests

cultural benefits: appreciation of, & communion with, the natural world; recreational activities

game on..

lets fish..

should i grow up, hope to see you..

rock monument in bahrain
gs parado - faham ia bahasa melayu kan ? (does he understand malay language?)
oj - auw faham sikit sikit (yes i understand abit)

striked! croxfiber's obligation - who is next to him, should get a fishnet!

haz alamrox - it's a thrill to net a fish
abgCF - a skill should apply to do the netting

tips: fish is alarmed by the obvious landing net! let the net rim well submerged / keep the net low in the water (tenggalamkan dengan sempurna) before it reach us.. when the fish is played out, it should be drawn over a fully submerged net & lift the net out of the water

anjun or multi-hooked (azz as in persian) so lucky.. the tail's caught & hooked!
