Description :

E. J. H. Corner’s perennial favorite The Life of Plants, copiously stocked with now-classic botanical illustrations, is one of the most fascinating and original introductions to the world of plants ever produced—from the botanist to the amateur, no reader will finish this book without gaining a much richer understanding of plants, their history, and their relationship with the environments around them.

Although the world of plant biology has gone way beyond the experences and studies of Corner, his book should still stand as an example of how to write an introduction to any scientific subject. He combines analysis and opinion superbly, and, best of all, he lets the book flow like a novel.
