Life - Plants

This is the only episode of the BBC Life series that does not focus on animals. Rather, the biodiversity within the plant kingdom is showcased. Plants have many of the same basic needs as all organisms, but the primary one that is unique to them is sunlight. This need for sunlight, along with water and nutrients, is the focus on this episode.
