If you listen closely, you can hear the sounds of a critical element in the production of silk--silkworm caterpillars dining on mulberry leaves. This episode of the two-minute radio show Pulse of the Planet focuses on how silkworms are raised. In the episode, available here in MP3 audio and text formats, a guest biochemist describes the silk farming process, noting the silkworms' dependence on large quantities of human-supplied mulberry leaves. The host points out how much silkworms grow in length and mass as evidence for why so many leaves are needed. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
