Watch a 5-minute video on the creation of a “Devils Garden” in Peru. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0M8QSCjcdM) . This is an example of (amongst other biological concepts) the importance of chemistry in biology.
Please contribute to the discussion in the following ways:
Briefly summarize the biological interactions that create Devils Gardens, mentioning the chemical(s) and organism(s) involved.
Briefly research another example of a chemical that is important in biology and provide a clear description and explanation of the chemical itself and of the organisms involved.
Please include your references.
