Adaptation: Spot Your Flower
  • Biology → Adaptation → Plant Adaptation
  • Biology → Pollination → Cross-pollination

Laroche and Orlean are at a flower show looking at different flowers. Laroche spots an orchid and notes that Darwin hypothesized that a moth with a proboscis of 12 inches pollinated it. Laroche then discusses how each flower and insect that pollinates it are unique, and neither one of them realizes how vital they are to one another.
