Botany for gardeners :an introduction and guide
Synopses & Reviews
A clear, nontechnical explanation of how plants work, and our bestselling book. It succeeds in explaining the complex processes of plant growth, functions, adaptation, responses, and reproduction in simple language. As the author intended, the gardener can come to understand a plant from the plant's point of view.
Book News Annotation:
Capon draws on his long experience teaching introductory botany for nonscientists, to present a survey of the entire field in lay terms and oriented to the experiences and needs of the gardener and horticulturist. Excellent drawings and photographs, many in color. We eagerly await the sequel: Gardening for Botanists.
