A Plant Walk with Mors Kochanski
Now on DVD!

The Mors Kochanski Plant Walk Series includes seven volumes covering 240 species of plants, plus a master tape for a quick review of them all. As usual, the quality of the information in Kochanski's videos is quite good. I've been studying plants for nearly twenty years, but still found many new and good ideas.

The challenge is to make a video about plants that is also interesting and captivating to watch. The ideal plant video should be produced on DVD, so that the viewer could plug the disk into a computer and go directly to the plant of interest.

As far as plant videos go, these are not too bad. Plants are typically featured in series of seven, followed by review sections to help you remember what you watched. Common and Latin names are given on the video. Also included are question and answer sheets to aid in the review process. I recommend using these videos with Botany in a Day. Look up the Latin names from the video in the index of Botany in a Day to learn the family information.

Range of Plants Covered:These videos were filmed in western Canada. As with any plant book or video you will find many of the species, or close relatives, over much of the continent. To figure if these tapes are right for you, consider these three factors: cold winters, humid air, and western location.

If the place you live matches all three of these factors then you will likely find 90% or more of the plants discussed. If your place matches two of these factors (for example: cold, humid and eastern or cold, dry and western), then you will likely find about 60% of these plants in your area. If your place matches only one factor (for example: warm, dry, western) then you will likely find about 30% of these plants in your area. The plants covered in each video include, by common name:
