The Himalayas Treasure Trove of Natural Heritage: Ep. 1 Miracles of Survival

CGTN published this video item, entitled “The Himalayas Treasure Trove of Natural Heritage: Ep. 1 Miracles of Survival” – below is their description.

As the world’s highest mountain range, the Himalayas are home to a complete range of climatic zones, and this is one reason for the region’s rich biodiversity. Plants in these separate environments have developed different survival strategies. Some keep a low profile to retain warmth and moisture. Others, meanwhile, provide shelter to the pollinators that service them.

In episode one of The Himalayas Treasure Trove of Natural Heritage, we look at the multitude of ways these plants have adapted to their varied surroundings to grow and flourish in unique splendor in these magical mountains.
