For the Love of Rhododendron
Episode 6 - The pitch of their wingbeats
Synopsis: In today's episode we meet Dr. Robbie Hart, a researcher at the William L. Brown
Center of the Missouri Botanical Garden. We learn how hillsides filled with Rhododendron flowers have influenced
the everyday lives of people on Mt. Yulong in South China, how this traditional ecological knowledge is preserved
in the local languages of Yunnan, and how even listening to a tiny bee buzzing around a flower can provide insight
on the importance of plants and the environment for the flourishing of humankind.
