“Makes the science of plant processes accessible to home gardeners.” —The American Gardener
Why do container plants wilt even when they’ve been regularly watered? Why did the hydrangea that thrived last year never bloom this year?
Most of us lump plants together in one big family, and when pressed can only explain their grouping by what they’re not—not an animal, not a mineral, and so just a plant. In reality, there are hundreds of different plant families, each grouped logically by a unique family history and genealogy.
Welcome to the Fungarium! Step into the world of fungi and learn all about these strange and fascinating life-forms.
Plants of the World is the first book to systematically explore every vascular plant family on earth—more than four hundred and fifty of them—organized in a modern phylogenetic order. Detailed entries for each family include descriptions, distribution, evolutionary relationships, and fascinating information on economic uses of plants and etymology of their names.
Gardening can be frustratingly shrouded in secrecy. Fickle plants make seemingly spontaneous decisions to bloom or bust, seeds sprout magically in the blink of an eye, and deep-rooted mysteries unfold underground and out of sight.
