Plant Clippings is a website centered on a collection of 10 short videos, each highlighting different aspects of the 12 Principles of Plant Biology. The episodes show how Detectives Appleby and Root solve plant-based crimes for the Photosynthetic Organism Detective Service, or PODS.
The videos were developed through collaboration between plant biologists Lacy Nelson and ASPB member Ken Korth at the University of Arkansas Department of Plant Pathology, and students in the TV Production program under the direction of Peggy James at Fayetteville (Arkansas) High School.
