Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

The McKenzie and Amazon Valleys are 10,000 kilometres distant from one another and are certainly distinct ecologically. Yet in a subtle sense they are collaborating elements within the biosphere - the Earth’s thin layer of living matter. This film examines two of the myriad river ecosystems and shows how they are linked within the biosphere.
