- land on a beach; "the ship beached near the port"
- A beach is a geological landform along the shoreline of an ocean, sea or lake. It usually consists of loose particles which are often composed of rock, such as sand, gravel, shingle, pebbles, waves or cobblestones.
- A pebbly or sandy shore, esp. by the ocean between high- and low-water marks
- an area of sand sloping down to the water of a sea or lake

July 2008 High Science - Making Discoveries in the World’s Tallest Trees Hiking through a forest, it would be no surprise to find ferns, berry bushes, and the occasional salamander. But in California’s giant redwood forests, you can find them 300 feet above the forest floor, and it’s this unique ecosystem that Steve Sillett studies. Sensors are installed on a 371-foot redwood to measure the flow of sap. The broad platforms created by large limbs serve as important habitats in redwood forest canopies. Sillett and his wife, Marie, in a large fire cave that occurs in the main trunk of this tree 161 feet above the ground. A huckleberry bush growing from a fire cave. Sillett is a redwood ecologist at California’s Humboldt State University, and he specializes in researching the complex web of organisms that live hundreds of feet above the ground––organisms that call the redwood canopy their home. Climbing these giants, some more than 350 feet tall, Sillett confronts a variety of epiphytes, plants that grow on other plants. They are not considered parasitic, as they draw their nutrients from the air and rain. In the case of redwoods, epiphytes can be as large as hemlock trees thriving on the giant limbs of their hosts. Additionally, when forest fires burn through a stand of redwoods, they can leave large hollowed out fire caves within the trunks, providing rotten, spongy pockets in which plants thrive. And it’s not unusual to find huckleberry bushes rooted in three feet of accumulated dirt within these fire caves. “We’re interested in quantifying how much water is stored in these rot pockets to allow the huckleberry bushes to thrive,” says Sillett. “Even in dry years, they seem to have plenty of water to make berries. In the wintertime, the huckleberries turn red, so this thing's like a beacon.” Even from a distance, he marvels, “you can tell it’s a huckleberry way the heck up here on this spire.” “Redwood forest canopy is full of all kinds of creatures,” he says. “On the way up, encountered about 4 different flying squirrel nests. They live inside hollows created by bark that flakes away, and they strip the bark and make these soft little cozy dens. Also saw some really neat epiphytes… including one that I never noticed in the tree before, having surveyed this tree for many days, there is still something to be discovered. I found a sword fern growing on an old gnarly limb that I'd never noticed.” Redwoods can survive for thousands of years, playing host to many generations of organisms. Gigantic sections of tree can die or rot out, and the tree itself can continue to thrive. “Centuries ago [the tree] was building this wood, and because it invested so well in the decay resistance of this wood, this top is lasting for hundreds of years after it's died,” Sillett explains. “And a lot of these trees have just enormous quantities of dead wood, like tens of cubic meters of just rotting wood. And then there's the main trunk, much of which is often dead. When their tops break out, the water seeps in over the centuries, and so they become these holding tanks for moisture. And all kinds of organisms can take advantage of that moisture, as long as they can survive in this well exposed and illuminated environment… quite a few species have evolved to deal with these situations… It's a pretty amazing ecosystem.” So is there a limit to the growth of these ancient behemoths? Sillett recently measured the world’s tallest living tree, a 379-foot redwood, and found its growth to be negligible. “The thing's just eking along here, it's not doing much. Which isn't, I guess, too surprising. I expected a few centimeters of growth. But none is evident,” His team has run a battery of tests which suggest that the challenge of sucking groundwater 300-plus feet into a redwood’s crown has a way of restricting growth. The stress becomes too much, and photosynthesis, the tree’s “engine” so to speak, can shut down.

When we first found out that if we change the interactions inside this one species of plant, that it would effect plant diversity in the rainforest, we didnt believe the results. In a rainforest ecosystem, the relationships between plants and animals are often complex and interdependent. Change one seemingly small thing, and you could easily upset the entire ecosystem. Welcome to Pulse of the Planets Science Diaries, a glimpse of the world of science from the inside. Lee Dyer is an ecological entomologist at the University of Nevada in Reno, who studies the rainforests of Costa Rica. This pepper plant that has a web of interactions within it, alright, so there's the plant itself, and then theres these little caterpillars that can actually kill the plant. And then there are these ants that live inside the plant that kill the caterpillars. And then there's a beetle that kills the ants. The experiments that we did, for the most part involved adding beetles to patches of plants where these beetles didn't exist. When we did that what happened is they suppressed populations of ants, which normally suppress the caterpillars. So with the ants gone, caterpillar populations exploded and the leaf biomass declined really quickly of this plant. And what happened in this case is that other caterpillars were also released from control by the ants and they ate other species of plants, including plants that were destined to be big trees. They were seedlings of these plants that are normally these huge 40-meter tall trees that extend out from the canopy of the rainforest. The end result was that several years of just barely increasing the population of these beetles changed the diversity of plants in the understory. Well hear more about the ecology of the rainforest in future programs. Our latest project is a competition for third to sixth graders. Check out kidsciencechallenge.com.

Easy to use and comes with sandbags for increased stability
There's nothing better than a day at the beach, but a full day of UV rays can take its toll. Enter the Texsport Calypso cabana, a sturdy beach shelter that's ideal for long afternoons on the shore. Made of heavy-duty polyurethane-coated taffeta for increased UV protection and cool comfort, the Calypso cabana protects you on three sides, with a roof that extends over the top as you lounge below. You can sit inside the cabana to avoid the sun, lie partially covered to protect just your face, or huddle up for full-body protection when the winds start whipping.
The cabana also offers a durable ripstop polyethylene floor and three no-see-um mesh windows with zippered storm flaps. And the shelter is a breeze to set up and take down thanks to the three-pole pin-and-ring frame system and the shock-corded fiberglass poles. Other features include four weight/sand bags for increased stability, corner stakes, and a handy storage bag. Flame-retardant to CPAI-84 specifications, the Calypso cabana measures 48 by 84 by 48 inches (W x H x D) and comes in brilliant blue with rainbow stripes along the top.
