Streaming Media

Abstract

In this episode, Chris Gaiser (professor of biology at Linfield College) and Mike Crosser (professor of physics at Linfield College) discuss how plants prepare for winter and what happens once spring begins again. Plants have developed many techniques for preparing for wintertime, including storing all their sugars in their roots, in bulbs, or in their trunks. These stores of food allow them to jump-start growth as soon as conditions become favorable again for photosynthesis to occur.
