What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses by Daniel Chamovitz
What a Plant Knows: A Field Guide to the Senses

Shirley K, January 25, 2014

This an extraordinary book, packed with information in remarkably few words. It has made me a better gardener and a much more appreciative being. It helped a lot that I understood basic biology, even from many years ago. If you love science, you will love this small book and the enormous world it opens. Further, on COURSERA, a free online seminar service, the author himself teaches this book, a wonderful bonus.
