Dear friends,

I happened to see this video titled The Beautiful Tricks of Flowers by Jonathan Drori on the TED site. 
According to TED: "In this visually dazzling talk, Jonathan Drori shows the extraordinary ways flowering plants -- over a quarter million species -- have evolved to attract insects to spread their pollen: growing 'landing-strips' to guide the insects in, shining in ultraviolet, building elaborate traps, and even mimicking other insects in heat."

When you see this talk you can see the link to Every Pollen Grain has a story - another Drori talk.
And also a lovely talk by Nalini Nadkarni on Preserving the Canopy
