Abstract:

Shows ways that plants have evolved since moving from sea to land around 400 million years ago. Describes how the development of roots and veins made terrestrial life possible, and how plants with woody stems evolved into trees. With wide-ranging examples, including the Venus flytrap, the Wollemi Pine, and the giant sequoia, the program explains how different adaptations enable plants to reproduce, obtain nutrients, and ward off predators. It also covers basic botanical concepts such as photosynthesis, pollination, and germination.
