Editorial Reviews

Every 48 years, the inhabitants of the remote Indian state of Mizoram suffer a horrendous ordeal known locally as mautam. An indigenous species of bamboo, blanketing 30 percent of Mizoram's 8,100 square miles, blooms only once every half-century, spurring an explosion in the black rat population that feeds off the bamboo's fruit. The rats run amok, destroying crops and precipitating a crippling famine throughout Mizoram. NOVA follows this gripping tale of nature's capacity to engender human suffering, and investigates the botanical mystery of why the bamboo flowers and why the rats attack with clockwork precision every half-century.

Rat Attack has the quality of content and production one would expect from a NOVA production. The viewer follows the efforts of an Australian scientist to discover the hows and whys of an attack of rats on a remote eastern area of India. The appearance of the rats occurs every 48 years and coincides with the blooming and fruiting of the bamboo plants.

I found this video fascinating and it held my interest throughout. For the squeamish, there are several segments that show rat disections, a necessary part of the investigation regarding the massive and fast reproduction of these black rats.

The quality of the video as viewed on my computer's 22" monitor was superb, with excellent color, detail, and clarity.

This video easily describes carrying capacity and is very suitable for high school students. My students enjoyed the topic in my ecology unit.
