Video Clips of Medicinal Plants

An ongoing project of mine is collecting short videos of medicinal plants in the field. I use them for teaching purposes and will probably make a couple of DVDs out of them eventually. I have edited a few of them into shorter 240x180 clips and will put them up as I have the time. Some were made using a video camera, most were made with a Canon miniDV; I took most of them (the shaky ones), and Donna Chesner took a few. Those of you with broadband access should feel blessed...here in rural SE Arizona our bandwidth approaches that of a piano wire. These files are all .mov, and need a quicktime 4.0 plugin for your browser.
