A-16 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Sunday, September 29, 1991 Healthscience Biosphere attracting tourists Park based on ecology experiment could turn a profit 111 brought on board to develop Biosphere's commercial potential. ' Buchthal envisions an ecological Epcot Center-like theme park complete with golf course, a world-class spa, a 300-room hotel and various amusements, including an electronic "talk" with Biospherians who give videotaped responses to set questions. High-tech spinoffs Aside from developing Biosphere gifts and clothing, during the past 13 months Buchthal has been busy trying to strike deals involving technologies that evolved from the project: A glazing system was used on the sprawling structure that is reputedly more airtight than anything on the market. Waste-recycling technology. A patented "Airtron" soilbed reactor that removes pollutants from the air by forcing them through soil. An Airtron unit for homes and restaurants would run about $600 retail, he said. Scores of other patent applications also have been filed. FORT WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM ORACLE, Ariz. Whatever its scientific validity, Biosphere 2 is headed toward becoming a New Age theme park, complete with trams, theaters and an ecologically correct golf course. A million visitors a year, at $10 each, are projected. There's also the licensing of Biosphere memorabilia, the franchising of Biosphere gift shops and, of course, movie rights. Eight Biospherians are sealed in the futuristic steel-and-glass Noah's ark for two years, living solely on food they grow and recycling their air, water and waste, while carrying out ecological experiments in five wilderness "biomes" a rain forest, ocean, savannah, marsh and desert. The endeavor is aimed at discovering how ecosystems work. The technology, proponents say, could be used to understand what is needed to sustain life for extended periods in a space ship or on another planet. In the last eight months, 100,000 people have paid $9.95 each for a tour of the $150 million project "and it was still a construction site," said Stanley "Bucky" Buchthal, a Los Angeles businessman YOUR CHOICE!

They could be talking about you. A zoologist who has studied two colonies of the Gunnison's species of prairie dog in Arizona said he has discovered that the animals use a vocabulary of alarm calls so rich that they can describe individual predators. If this is correct, other scientists say, the Gunnison's calls would be one of the most complex animal languages ever studied in the wild. Constantine N. Slobodchikoff of Northern Arizona University said Gunnison's prairie dogs give different alarm calls for humans, owls, hawks, dogs, ferrets and coyotes. The animal also can identify individual humans, dogs and coyotes in terms of their size, shape and color. That means, he said, that when a Gunnison's sees a person, it doesn't simply say, "Predator!" It actually says, for example, "Tall dark thin man!"
