About the Book

Readers will find their ideas about plants fundamentally altered and their appreciation enhanced thanks to this intriguing look at the qualities that make plants unique.

Book Synopsis

What do we know about plants, really? Through a rich array of examples, many illustrated in the author's elegant and distinctive style, this book offers a new look at botany. This scholarly yet fun book examines the qualities that make plants unique, so different from animals. Experienced in both the academic and in-the-field sides of science, the opinionated Hallé delightfully makes the case that plants differ so profoundly from animals that questions are raised about the meaning of individuality and the nature of life and death.

This book is only available through print on demand. All interior art is black and white.
