QUEST: Revisiting Albino Redwoods, Biological Mystery
Exactly why they survive is a mystery, but hidden among the giant redwoods deep in California's redwood forests are small albino redwoods. Very few of these pale, ghostlike trees exist and none grow very large, yet somehow they continue to survive. Join KQED's QUEST on a visit to Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park to examine these unusual forest phantoms. Find an explanation of how albino redwoods differ from regular redwoods as well as information about photosynthesis and genetic diversity among redwood trees.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
