Book Description Timber Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 3rd edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. For two decades readers around the world have been fascinated by Brian Capon s crystal-clear descriptions of how plants work. What happens inside a seed after it is planted?

Botany for Gardeners is the most complete, compact, and accessible introduction to the world of botany available. The new edition has been expanded with dazzling scanning electron microscope photographs and even more amazing facts about plants. Especially timely are new essays on food plants: what makes plants edible, the effects of climate change, and the role of genetic engineering.
