Biota are a musical collective from Fort Collins, CO who focus on the electronic manipulation of acoustic sounds, mainly instruments such as naes, hurdy-gurdies, keyboards, percussion and, most recently, vocals.
They started out as the musical wing of the Mnemonists, a group of musicians, scientists and visual artists whose self-proclaimed goal was to question the desirability of bombarding children with technology; the musical wing split off in the mid-80s and renamed itself Biota, though the painters still provide their colorful liner notes and cover art.
Their early work (which I haven't heard at the time of this writing) is reputed to be very abstract, noisy and difficult to hear as coming from acoustic sources.

 A THALLOPHYTIC-ALGA-DOMINATED BIOTA FROM THE SILURIAN ERAMOSA FORMATION, ONTARIO, CANADA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
A "thallophytic-alga-dominated biota" is a distinctive and recurrent fossil assemblage in which noncalcified thallophytic algae ("seaweeds") and worms (primarily annelids) are the principal, and often only, constituents.
This biota provides a remarkably complete view of a community characteristic of restricted, shallow marine settings since at least the Cambrian and ranks among the most common of Konservat-Lagerstätten, a biased representation that stems from habitat parameters particularly conducive to preservation.
The biota is preserved within thinly laminated, organic-rich dolostone; worms (polychaetes) are represented as articulated scolecodont assemblages, whereas algae are preserved as carbonized compressions.

 USGS: Pesticides in Stream Sediment and Aquatic Biota">
Sediment serves as a habitat for benthic biota (such as insects and clams, which are commonly consumed by fish), as both a source and a removal mechanism for some contaminants to and from the stream, and as a vehicle for contaminant transport downstream.
Historically, the pesticides of primary concern in sediment and aquatic biota have been the organochlorine insecticides, such as DDT, which were heavily used in agriculture, termite control, and malaria control programs from the mid-1940s to the 1960s or later.

 BIOTA RISK ASSESSMENT-DEVILS LAKE STUDY
Biota of concern include invasive and damaging animals, plants, parasites,and pathogens, many of which are not native to North America, or not native to these watersheds.
The studies are often general comparative biota inventories done across wide geographic areas, are not necessarily focused on determining whether problematic exotic species or pathogens or parasites are present, or have not assessed potential impacts when such biota are known to be present.
If this assessment determines that there are specific biota that could cause unacceptable damages in the Red River Basin, and have been determined to be a risk from this project, identify whether there are physical, chemical, or biological barriers to prevent this from occurring.
