Climate Adaptation

CLIMATE ADAPTATION

I want to punch climate change in the face. A blog about the interactions between the built environment, people, and nature.

The Himalayan Balsam seed pod is super sensitive to pressure. It disperses seeds up to 7 meters.


Beautiful but deadly, the delicate plant is strangling native plants in the Northern Hemisphere, especially the United States. Not only are the seed pods gnarly, they flowers attract bees and other pollinators with high volumes of nectar. It’s a double whammy of evolution.

Update. This is supposed to be a gif. View it here.

      I used to play with these seed pods as a kid. I loved it when they would just BLOW UP at the slightest touch. Favorite...
