Living Together by David Attenborough( Visual )

David Attenborough's series takes us on a guided tour through the secret world of plants and their struggle for survival in a story full of drama, beauty and achievement. Using time-lapse photography, Attenborough walks us through each aspect of plants' lives-travelling, growing, flowering, coexisting with other plants and animals, and the ingenious way they adapt to even the harshest of conditions. "Living Together" examines relationships between plants and animals, fungi, and other plants. Some are mutually beneficial, such as algae living inside coral or plants that recruit ant defenders in exchange for a safe nesting spot. Others are truly symbiotic, such as lichens that combine algae and fungi into one structure. Parasitic plants feed on their host's nutrients without offering any favors

"Many animals find it advantageous to live in groups, and their communities work more efficiently if they have some form of social structure. Inevitable squabbles over food, nesting places, arguments over mates must be settled with a minimum expenditure of time and energy. True socialites, the vampire bats not only scratch one another's backs, but also share each other's meals. The leaf-cutting ant colony is like a single super-organism, whose members are so nearly identical they can be considered as being of one flesh"--Container
