Flower Girl Dresses For Summer By Karen Etchels

Every bride should have the most special day of their life on their wedding day and it is no different with their little flower girls. There is such a huge choice of flower girl dresses that it is often very difficult to make the right choice. At this exciting time it is so important to get the perfect flower girl dress which is both beautiful and elegant in its own right as well as fitting in well with the bridal dress itself.

Parents are increasingly looking online to help source their flower girl outfits. It is important to not only find the right style of dress but also fabric, colour and length. If you get it just right you should be able to find a dress which has the cornerstone look for both casual and formal wear meaning the flower girl dress will look just right for the wedding but also be useable on various other occasions throughout the year.

There are many styles which can go straight from the wedding day to evening when it comes to flowergirl dresses. Once really good idea is to accessorise the dress and add a bag, shoes and even a faux fur shrug...this would look perfect for the wedding itself but be removed in the evening for a more casual look.

The fabric choice is huge with flower girl dresses coming in silk, satin, tafetta and dupioni silk too. A flower corsage can complete the look and also be removed for more informal wear on another occasion. Of course the dress will have to fit the wedding theme and so colour and style can be even more important. Flower girl dresses traditionally come in an ivory or cream but these can be brightened up with contrast colour sashes or you could go for a contrast colour dress in say turquoise, red or pink. There is also a vast choice of floral dresses on the market as well just now.

One of the most frustrating things about flower girl dresses is the fact that you have to purchase a dress just for this one off occasion. This can be very pricey and the dress only be worn for a short time. If this is a problem look for a dual purpose dress....one which is made of washable material but can also be dressed up for a special day, then be worn for other important occasions and even turned into a fancy dress costume once it has been used.

Ecosystem of the Coral Reefs By Artem Kushneryk

Ecosystem of the coral reefs is very vulnerable. These creatures are usually the first to die during ecological catastrophes.
Coral reefs are often called "rainforests of the sea". They are home to a quarter of the marine species and play a key role in ecosystems of seas and oceans maintaining their biological diversity. Coral reefs that originated more than 200 millions year ago, are themselves a very old and productive ecosystem. Apart from an important role they play in the environment they are also important for the development of tourism, fishing industry and health care. But they are reducing in numbers nowadays.
Coral reefs are one of the most beautiful and at the same time the most vulnerable species. They can be found in tropical and subtropical water in a variety of sizes. They form small rocks and The Great Barrier Reef stretching for over 2,300 kilometers along the coast of Australia is the largest structure formed by a living creature in the world. But even small reefs are home to thousands of marine species and algae which form a complicated and dynamic ecosystem.
In tropic waters where there are coral reefs there are also many species of fish as well as other marine plants and animals which play an important role in reefs' productivity thus benefiting people as about 100 millions people live in the costal areas and are directly dependent on the ecosystem or the coral reefs as people there mainly live on fishing and tourism.
Circular groups of coral islets form atolls which are sometimes inhabited by people.
Building stone which contains coral residuals finds its application as constructional material used for inner and outer decoration of the houses. Millions of years ago it was shell limestone and consisted of sediments, corals and mollusks shells but with the course of time it turned into a solid rock, and peculiar patterns left by corals and layers of different minerals can be seen on its surface.
Coral jewelry is becoming popular nowadays. Fishing nets are usually used to get corals from the sea bottom. As "first class" corals are really rare only a small amount of the caught corals is culled out to be further uses as jewelry. Nowadays there is an urge need to use environmentally friendly ways of coral harvesting. Such methods are costlier but less harmful for coral colonies.
There are many reasons corals die: water pollution, global warming, extinction of species that are part of coral reef ecosystems.
If people don't do anything to reduce pollution and restore coral reef population then in some fifty years there can be no coral reefs at all on our planet. This would influence the whole ecosystem of seas and oceans.
Thus people will have to do their best to save reefs and this should be done in the shortest time possible.
