Video of the Week #86, April 3rd, 2013:

From: Carnivorous Plants in 3D: The Stuff of Horror Films! by Carin Bondar at PsiVid.

Source: John Innes Centre on YouTube.

This short film was created by the Enrico Cohen lab at the John Innes Center using ‘optical projection tomography’, a microscopic technique that allows the viewer to ‘dive’ into the cavities of a carnivorous plant. The technology is among the latest developed to reveal the inner structure of organisms. The video provides a look at the inner workings of four different, vessel-shaped carnivorous plants that have evolved independently.
