Here's a list of plant videos that I use in teaching -
Sexual Encounters of the Floral Kind - I too would like to know about
a DVD version.
Deep SEa Invasion - NOVA - An unfortunate title for an interesting
account of the Caulerpa taxifolia invasion. (it does not live in the
Diatoms - Life in Glass Houses - (Cytographics.com) - Awesome video
microscopy. Extensive cell biology (too much for my class). DVD
Dutch Elm Disease and the American Elm - (APS Press) - Very
interesting, but lacking the slick presentation of an Attenborough
20th Century Medicine Man (Conservation International) and "The
Shaman's Apprentice" (Miranda Productions) - two very similar videos
featuring the ethnobotanical work of Mark Plotkin. More information
might be available on the Amazon Conservation TEam website.
I also use the Attneborough series Private Life of Plants. I had a
student watch the entire series and take notes on the examples so
that I can locate which video I want to use to illustrate a point.
