The Life of Plants — E.J.H. Corner

$24.95 USD

Highly original, artfully written, beautifully and originally illustrated. The Life of Plants masterfully combines the macroscopic and microscopic into a well-balanced whole, the best work of its kind that I have ever seen. It is new in concept, new in approach, new in examples...the book lives and breathes.

— Richard Evans Schultes, Science
