Revisiting Albino Redwoods, Biological Mystery | QUEST
Description

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.
