The secret life of Artic plants

For a long time, people believed that plants don’t do anything during winter. That they just lie there under the snow cover. Dormant, almost dead. But in the far north of Sweden - in the Arctic - Ellen Dorrepaal, Umeå University, leads a group of researchers who are about to discover that the plants have a secret life, the likes of which no one has seen. Join Ellen to Abisko in the Arctic and her field experiments and research to understand the life of plants and how climate change - with milder winters - will change the landscapes in the north.
