Review:

'... one of the best-written, general accounts of plant biology that I know ... if you are looking for a book to stress the significance of modern plant science/fascination of botany on young minds (or even not-so-young ones), look no further than the 2nd edition of John King's Reaching for the Sun!' Annals of Botany

'... I enjoyed the book. It was interesting and presented many examples of plant species and environments from around the world.' The Forestry Chronicle

'... highly recommended for any citizen looking for a straightforward and thorough overview of plants and their lives.' Plant Science Bulletin

Book Description:

Written with the non-specialist in mind, this book provides a lively introduction to how plants function. Topics include energy, nutrition, growth, development and, new to this edition, the interaction of plants with their environment, particularly exploring the impact of problems created by human activities such as pollution and global warming.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. From their ability to use energy from sunlight to make their own food, to combating attacks from diseases and predators, plants have evolved an amazing range of life-sustaining strategies. Written with the non-specialist in mind, John King's lively natural history explains how plants function, from how they gain energy and nutrition to how they grow, develop and ultimately die. New to this edition is a section devoted to plants and the environment, exploring how problems created by human activities, such as global warming, pollution of land, water and air, and increasing ocean acidity, are impacting on the lives of plants. King's narrative provides a simple, highly readable introduction, with boxes in each chapter offering additional or more advanced material for readers seeking more detail. He concludes that despite the challenges posed by growing environmental perils, plants will continue to dominate our planet. Seller Inventory # AAA9780521736688
