Summary
David Attenborough's series takes us on a guided tour through the secret world of plants and their struggle for survival in a story full of drama, beauty and achievement. Using time-lapse photography, Attenborough walks us through each aspect of plants' lives-travelling, growing, flowering, coexisting with other plants and animals, and the ingenious way they adapt to even the harshest of conditions. "Growing" examines how plants use sunlight, carbon dioxide, water, and soil nutrients to develop. Learn about leaf structure and photosynthesis, how trees pump water from the ground to the canopy, and why certain trees can live for thousands of years. Finally, Attenborough looks at plant defense strategies, from evolving thorns and stingers to mimicry to becoming carnivores themselves
