9788179934418: Golden Greens: the Amazing World of Plants

Golden Greens: The Amazing World of Plants is a definitive introduction to everything you want to know about plants the world over. It meticulously describes the forms, habits and different facets and peculiarities of plants. Informative, thought-provoking and painstakingly researched, the book includes a number of case studies of rare and endangered plants species and emphasizes upon the importance of their conservation.

The trees and plants have long been part of our folklore, myths, epics, rituals, books, arts and daily life. While asserting their ecological importance the book systematically lays out the sociocultural roots of the various plants.

Interspersed with a large number of illustrations, Golden Greens is a must-read not only for students of botany and environmental science, but all others who are curious to learn about the myriad ways in which plants impact our lives.
