Summary:

This collection is comprised of motion picture, video, and audio recordings of three productions regarding issues related to biodiversity, biotic communities, and the study of these systems. "To Coexist: Diversity and Development" was produced for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). The 30-minute program depicts how development professionals can take biological diversity into account when planning their projects. "Diversity Endangered" is a 10-minute video production demonstrating the interrelatedness of living organisms and the part that man plays in disturbing or preserving the crucial balance. "National Teleconference on BioDiversity," held September 24, 1986, was Smithsonian's first live teleconference produced for the Directorate of International Activities. The final event of the four-day National Forum on BioDiversity was cosponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institution. This 2-hour program was telecast via satellite to more than a hundred downlink sites on university campuses nationwide. See Accession 92-030 for records relating to videos of the National Forum on BioDiversity.
