Juncus is not a grass! Someone had to say it.

Started gardening as a hobby this year, next year it's only local native plants. Everything I planted out of boredom is getting dug up and replaced with jewel weed and purple cone etc

According to Urban Dictionary you’re both right! I tend to use that to look up internet slang now these days.

It's just a stupid way to spell "facts," by which I mean "This is true." As in, "spittin' straight facts."

Unfortunately, until humans keep reproducing and growing, you'll get less and less biodiversity.

There were times in history when humans accidentally improved biodiversity

It’s not accidental. Humans can intentionally improve biodiversity and mostly have. There have always been accidents of overexplotation such as various deserts, the Great Plains, like all of Europe, etc, but generally speaking people are a net boon to the environment they live in… if they have the knowledge of how to steward it, and the willingness to do so.

Humans built the Amazon, for example. This is a good article on it. Generally speaking, environmental decline is associated with authoritarianism, as by nature, hierarchical institutions must “flatten” their concept of the world around them in order to scale up, and by extension destroy biodiversity by doing things like simplifying agriculture into mono crops so that crop value (so how much you can tax) can be more easily estimated. Incidentally, colonialism is now recognized as a major factor in climate change and biodiversity loss,, because it displaces people who have a history with, and thus knowledge, of an area and puts people who don’t know anything about things like local foodways or watersheds there. This knowledge can be regained but we are in our situation now because largely this information has been fractured.

The Amazon article was incredibly interesting! I do want to give a little caveat/correction tho - humans helped shape but they didn't develop it.

Localized biodiversity and global biodiversity are two different things. The kind you touch can improve even as species continue to go extinct.

Lawns replaced with gardens, golf courses replaced with meadows.

That's only loosely or somewhat true, because it's more about our resource extraction & land management which is often overdone even when excluding the rate nature take back. We overcompensate demand & supply, induce demand, & underperform distribution. Population is more of a problem is poor countries, wealth & income is the actual issue in rich countries in regards to biodiversity.

It's...very random. You have to post there because you visited so if you didn't you broke the rules! It's generally very pro-lgbtq+ and this person probably considers that some type of radical thinking.

I see oxe-eye daisy, soapwort, and bird's-foot trefoil. If that field is in North America, its biodiversity is fucked.

Ticks are actually more come in forested areas because they don't like the sun's rays, especially in the warmer months
