It's okay to be smart about plants

I'm an enormous fan of the YouTube channels produced by PBS Digital Studios. I've posted before about my affection for Deep Look, an exploration of life on the small scale, mostly about bugs and ocean life.

Well, I just have to tell you that the most recent video from It's Okay To Be Smart blew my mind. Trees can manipulate the weather to induce rain, what?

And check out this one about the amazing ways that plants interact with the environment.

Ok, one more: this is about the chemicals that plants produce in order to defend themselves against being eaten by bugs. It just so happens that we find most of these chemicals to be tasty.
