With temperatures as cold as those we’ve felt recently, people who are concerned about their own survival may not take the time to consider that even plants have had to find a way to adapt to temperature extremes.
Earlier this month a team of researchers studying plants published new findings on how flowering plants evolved to move into areas with cold winters.
One of the researchers involved in the project is Professor Peter Reich
of the University of Minnesota. He talked with KFAI’s Ron Thums.
