All conditions of biodiversity are mentioned through this display where one condition effects the growth of many species who would interact and rely each other in order to form an ecosystem. 18. Hall of Biodiversity “Life in Soil” This display shows different species interacting with the soil in its living environment through different seasons. One part of the display shows how the change in climate effects the way the chipmunks live its life. In the winter the chipmunk is shown in its nest under the forest line where it hibernates and in order to defeat hunger you see many acorns stored beneath the nest.

These agricultural bases were organized by a state that collected the surplus of food production and controlled the circulation of goods and the distribution of these goods to the social hierarchy. In the Aztec society trade was controlled by a special merchant class called pochteca, which was specialized in long distance luxury trade. Both empires had institutions that were older kinship-based, the ayllu and the calpulli, or clans, which showed that with the appearance of the social hierarchy the nobles rose to power and became predominant.

Another way to learn about different cultures is to try to learn a foreign language. A variety of language-learning books, software, and audio programs is available at the public library or bookstores or even on the internet. If One feels especially ambitious, he can enroll in a foreign language class in order to learn in a more formal setting. Making contact with people who are native speakers of the language allows gaining firsthand knowledge of a particular culture as the learner struggles to learn the language. This might sound funny but a person can also learn about different cultures if he samples authentic food from a specific cultural group.
