Tree of Knowledge

Where do you go when you need to find information on a particular subject? Today, the answer, most often, is the Internet. With computers taking over the knowledge arena, reading has been relegated to the back seat.

But a new magazine, which calls itself “the encyclopedia for every school child”, is indeed attractive enough to warrant a peek between its covers. Tree of Knowledge, a fortnightly magazine, is split into five sections: The Living World covers biology; Visiting the Past is obviously history; Science Explained focuses on physics and chemistry, Our Planet combines geography with a bit of science; and The Human Factor takes you through the arts and culture.

Going by the first issue, which hit the stands on September 10, this is one magazine that will be more popular with parents; what the kids think remains to be seen. The production is excellent with fabulous photographs, fact boxes with extra information, maps and illustrations. The section on the tsunami under Our Planet tells you all you want to know about these giant waves by focusing on the devastating one unleashed by the 2004 earthquake off Sumatra. The Science Explained section takes you into the astronaut’s suit and uses pictures and more pictures to give you all the info you need on why people going into space need those special suits.

The only grouse is that the text could be more child-friendly. While the general appearance of the magazine seems to target the 7-12 age groups, the text seems to be addressing an older group. Also a couple of typos (Gandhiji’s wife’s name is spelled Katurba) could have been avoided.

Mysteries of the sea

It was long believed that corals need warm, well-lit tropical waters to live but recently some white corals have been discovered in cold deep waters where there is also no light. Some of these temperate corals are 30 feet tall. They seem as abundant as the tropical corals but they have not been explored as much.

Tropical coral reefs are found around the Equator about 30° north and south. They are the best known among the corals. They need clear water, warmth and light and are found near the coast line.

Although the chief architects of the huge reefs are the stony corals, not all corals are hard. Some corals are known as soft corals and these don’t have the rigid outer skeleton we associate with hard corals.

There are different types of coral reefs — the Fringing reef, the Barrier reef and the Atoll. Fringing reefs are found off the shores of islands and coasts. A narrow stretch of water separates the Barrier reef from the shore. Probably the best known Barrier reef is The Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia. It is 1,269 miles long and from 10 to 90 miles wide. An Atoll is an isolated ring of coral. It is formed when an underwater volcano erupts and the lava rises above the surface of the sea.

Thousands of plants, fishes and invertebrates such as sponges, sea cucumbers, sea squirts and clams live in the tropical coral reefs. The Great Barrier Reef contains some 3000 species of animals.

The reef provides a home to some animals and a place to hide for others. It also serves as a dining table for predators such as sharks which come to forage on animals congregating in coral reefs.

There are, of course, animals that eat the reef itself. Some fish that are found in the open sea use the reef as a place to gather and breed. A few use the reef as a type of spa!
The Wrasse is a fish that gets its food while cleaning other sea creatures. Wrasses eat the parasites and debris on the bodies of other creatures.

Unfortunately, as a result of changing climate, increased pollution and other factors, the world’s coral reefs are now threatened habitats.
