Plants deserve respect.  In this episode of the Science Of, we will be focusing on plants that can be found right here in Nebraska, that are maybe more than meet the eye.  From the obvious and annoying poison ivy plant to the beautiful and tantalizing berries of deadly nightshade, to the common ragweed you find in the road ditches.  Each plant carries secrets and possible deadly encounters.  What plants are dangerous?  How do you remedy their danger?  What myths surround these plants?  Find out in this episode!
