The lead article in this Week's Nature Podcast (put out each week by the scientific journal Nature, in the UK) talks about the "discovery" that small plots of land set aside by rural landowners play an important part in maintaining the biodiversity of a region's ecosystem. As Permaculture people can we all say "duh!" Anyway, you can listen to that piece and the rest of the podcast here: http://www.nature.com/nature/podcast/. The podcast is along the right edge and is marked "17 April 2014".

Have a listen and let me know your thoughts about how we can use this to get scientists to take Permaculture more seriously as an eco-friendly system.
