To present the vitality of the seemingly immobile plant kingdom, the National Taiwan Museum has organized an educational exhibition called "The Magic of Plants,” which will be open to the public in Taipei from Jan. 28 through Aug. 31.
One of the museum's objectives is to introduce the "magic” of chloroplast, the organelle that makes photosynthesis possible. The title of the exhibition is a reference to the incredibly simple, yet brilliant, survival strategy evolved by the plant kingdom, in which only carbon monoxide, sunlight, and water are needed to thrive.
Moreover, the byproduct of photosynthesis is none other than oxygen, unequivocally the most crucial resource required by mankind, and largely by most of the complex species on Earth, to live.
To highlight the importance of plants and the role they play in perpetuating life on Earth, the exhibition will be presenting over 60 plant specimens, 15 scientific models, and more than 60 drawings detailing plant activity.
