Plants have been photographed with electron microscopes many times, but never before have they been filmed using this powerful magnification technique.
These listless life forms appear to be perfectly passive, almost motionless. Far from it! They are complex and fascinating organisms, the cornerstone of life on earth. Adopting new scales and references with regards to time, distance and perception, Invisible Nature opens up an enthralling realm. It encourages us to take the plants’ viewpoint in order to grasp the Darwinian logic of their survival, adaptation and evolution. Scientists demonstrate how man is striving to learn more about the mysteries of plants, and putting their many virtues to good use.
For instance, decoding how plants grow could help us to ‘grow’ new arms and legs for amputees.
