Combining graceful design and beautiful imagery, this book provides an elegant introduction to the plant kingdom

Discover the extraordinary diversity of the plant world - and how plants work - with this photographic celebration of the trees, flowers, and foliage plants that share our planet.

From tiny mosses and delicate ferns to vibrant blooms and stately palms, The Science of Plants invites you to explore the plant kingdom from the ground up, and from root to leaf tip. DK's elegant introduction to botany is packed with sumptuous photos and crystal-clear artworks that explain the mechanics of photosynthesis, why leaves change colour, how cacti store water, and how seeds know when to grow.

Filled with fascinating stories of how plants protect themselves from predators, and how flowers use colour and scent to interact with - and manipulate - the creatures around them, The Science of Plants is a fresh and engaging introduction to the mysterious inner workings of the plant world.
