The beginning of the video summarizes the legend of the three sisters, using video footage. We then used Flash Animation to explain the processes behind this agricultural application; photosynthesis, respiration, and nitrogen fixation.

This video was created by the Spring 2009 Plant Physiology class at Plymouth State University, under the supervision of Dr. Michele Pruyn.

This video is about plants that are found around the coast of Antarctica. Mosses are the dominant plants that grow around the coast of the Antarctic continent. Vascular plants are restricted to the Antarctic peninsula where conditions are slightly less extreme. Firstly this video seeks to explain how mosses survive in this inhospitable environment. Secondly I talk about how three species of Antarctic moss are being impacted by the ozone hole, and resulting increased ultraviolet radiation over Antarctica. Finally I discuss how recent climate change is affecting biodiversity and the consequences that this will have. The video represents a brief overview of my research into this area over the past decade. I hope that it is informative and interesting, but also makes people aware of the impacts of climate change across the globe and the need to act immediately to reduce our carbon emissions.

Summary of video content Prof. Lee A. Hadwiger of Washington State University's dept. of Plant Pathology describes how pea plants resists a bean diseases. Hadwiger and his colleagues have researched plant diseases for many years and now understand better how defense genes are activated. Hadwiger summarizes his researach to date and illustrates how modern technologies, such as chromatin immunoprecipitation, can be utilized in identifying nuclear proteins involved in gene activation. Additional Information A more scientific description of this topic with the proper citations is available in the following review paper: Hadwiger LA. 2008. Pea-Fusarium solani interactions contributions of a system toward understanding disease resistance. Phytopathology 98:372-379.
