Last thought before bed: ecology videos - soliciting ideas

I like the idea of vodcasting and online courses but me lecturing with powerpoints seems terribly boring. I thinking about producing short (15-20 minute) videos about ecology. Not "here's what I caught and how quickly it can kill you" but something more academic:

  • how organisms survive the winter
  • how do organisms navigate
  • territoriality
  • what are the major habitat types in PA (and NJ!)
  • population regulation and so on
But what to call it?  I was thinking eco... something but every damn time you put "eco" in the front of something these days it means recycling, planting a tree, etc. My god where is the "ology" in ecology??
