I teach the third class in our introductory biology series that covers
plant biology and ecology. I¹ve inherited the course and they use several
videos that are old.
The Rotten World Around Us--- great video but out of print and our copy is
slowly deteriorating. Any suggestions of replacements?
Sexual Encounters of a Floral Kind- great video, but again aging.
The Green Machine this covers basics about plant anatomy and physiology but
is old, tired and not that well done. I would love to find something else
that covers interesting ideas about the major themes of plant biology.
Genetic Time Bomb about genetic diversity in crop plants . Again a very
good video but was made in the 1980¹s, 1990¹s and is out of date. Any ideas
of what might replace it?
Cadillac Desert: The last oasis a good video about world wide water issues,
but also 10 years old and out of date. Any replacement ideas?
Further if there is anything you show that you think does a particularly
good job of conveying a concept, I would appreciate your thoughts.
