Description

Welcome to the Week at Duke in 60 Seconds. Duke scientists have discovered how ferns adapted to lower light levels once taller plants evolved. Cell-to-cell contact between fern reproductive material and a low-growing moss resulted in a more light-sensitive fern. http://today.duke.edu/2014/04/hornwort Junior Emily Briere is raising money to launch and land a time capsule on Mars.
