Broadcast 1 February 1995, this episode examines how plants either share 
environments harmoniously or compete for dominance within them. Attenborough 
highlights the 1987 hurricane and the devastation it caused. However, for some 
species, it was that opportunity for which they had lain dormant for many
years. The space left by uprooted trees is soon filled by others who move 
relatively swiftly towards the light. The oak is one of the strongest and 
longest-lived, and other, lesser plants nearby must wait until the spring to 
flourish before the light above is extinguished by leaves. Tropical forests are 
green throughout the year, so brute force is needed for a successful climb to 
the top of the canopy: the rattan is an example that has the longest stem of any 
plant. As its name suggests, the strangler fig 'throttles' its host by growing 
around it and cutting off essential water and light. Some can take advantage of 
a fallen tree by setting down roots on the now horizontal trunk and getting 
nutriment from the surrounding moss and the fungi on the dead bark. The mountain 
ash grows so tall, that regeneration becomes a considerable problem. It is easily flammable, so its solution is to shed its seeds during a forest fire and 
sacrifice itself. It therefore relies on the periodic near-destruction of its 
surroundings in order to survive. Attenborough observes that catastrophes such 
as fire and drought, while initially detrimental to wildlife, eventually allow 
for deserted habitats to be reborn.
