The Malcolms photographed diminutive plants--the kind a trekker might encounter--blanketing the floor of a New Zealand forest. In brilliant color images, mosses, lichens, and liverworts are shown many times their actual size; even their cell structure is revealed, with highly detailed views obtained through the use of a microscope. Informative commentaries accompany all photographs of the strangely exotic flora--botanical characteristics are described, along with basic data, such as the type of environment where a plant can be found. The authors say they would like to acquire an electron microscope, ostensibly to penetrate further mysteries. But it is awesome and intriguing just to glimpse the otherworldly images filling these pages, delving into realms both scientific and aesthetic. Alice Joyce
