Storyboard Text

  • There are various types of flowers in an environment, some have bigger pedals that make it easier to help pollinate,  others have smaller petals which make it difficult for bees to pollinate. 
  • When flowers pollinate they pass down heredity genes, and when other flowers grow they inherit some of their traits. For example the sun flowers on the right inherited the color from the flower on the left. 
  • As seen in the picture below, many ecosystems suffer from overpopulation of a species. Overpopulation can cause less genetic diversity in the environment and makes flowers more susceptible to viruses. 
  • One of the many reproductive advantages of flowers is the the surplus of food for the Bees to have.  There are some species of bees going extinct but with the plentiful amount of flowers they won't run out of food. 
  • Oh no! Three types of species have been stranded on an isolated island with the hot sun constantly beating on them and the water gradually hitting their stems. 
  • Millions of years later most of the flowers here went extinct except for a sunflower. This sunflower survived the suns heat, but then evolved to adapt to the sea water constantly hitting its stem.
