Secrets of Flower Power

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Plant Science: An Introduction to Botany

Secrets of Flower Power

Taught by Professor Catherine Kleier | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Flowering plants arrived relatively late in geological time, between 290 to 145 million years ago.  But once here, they evolved quickly and often displaced many other types of plants.  In fact, in terms of species, flowering plants are the dominant plant form on Earth today with more than 300,000 types.  Learn how their unique reproductive mechanisms led to this explosion of speciation in such a relatively short time.
