Ecology of Seeds and Plants

Investigate the life cycles of wild and domestic plants as you study the relationship between structure and function in an investigation of seeds and how they travel. Observe how the roots, leaves, stems, and flowers function together to help the plant grow and reproduce. Discover the important role pollinators play and explore how plants help landscapes stay resilient and healthy.
