Over the past months we have been undergoing in-depth technical work behind the scenes of iSpot updating the technology this will help to ensure that the service we provide has a sustainable future. With the first phase of this work almost done we will be introducing changes to the site in the coming weeks and months. We will be providing regular updates, revised Help Sections and FAQs to inform and guide you through this process so do look out for this; but we need your help too. The most important thing we need you to do now is to check and make sure that the email address you have linked with your account / profile is up-to-date.
What is an ecosystem? What is co-evolution? How do species interact with their habitat? How do we preserve ecosystems? These are some of the questions posed and answered in The Open University's MOOC (Massive Open Online Course): Introduction to Ecosystems. This free course runs for six weeks. If you are interested, read on to find out more.
