Saturday Video: The Private Life of Plants - Travelling

It is Sunday - but not too far from Saturday (astronomically, this delay is really negligible). I have been recovering from travels and teaching make-up classes (including one on Saturday!) - so the video has a day-delay.

This is the first episode of David Attenborough's The Private Life of Plants (tip from Darakhshan Mir). I was chided last week for focusing mostly on animals - and ignoring plants and their evolutionary history on the planet. Okay okay. Here is an an excellent episode on how plants are able to move:



Oh - but don't simply trust these plants. They can kill perhaps eat you too!!

Here is a short clip on Venus fly trap from a later episode
