Secret Scientific Live of Trees…and Prisons

Nalini Nadkarni is the founder of the Big Canopy Database that documents her research in the canopies of jungles in Costa Rica, the Amazon and Papua New Guinea. She also works with violent men in high security prisons, giving them science lessons and giving them images of nature to help inmates become calmer and less likely to react violently to situations.  She reports that prisoners choose the science lectures over TV and gym sessions. Watch her talking about her work in this TED video:
