Review:

"This is the most readable textbook I have ever encountered. Other textbooks look pretty, but do not read well."

"I considered the first edition years ago but this new one is a great addition to Introductory Botany and should make our pedagogical work easier and more effective."

"There is no question that your chapters are better.... This is true in terms of organization, main text, and illustration."
