KIRKUS REVIEW

The chapters of this book were originally magazine articles written by scientists for Scientific American and each chapter is an independent discussion of its subject. The first sections are concerned with plant hormones and physiology, the interconnection between climate and plant life, and the growth and form of plants. The remaining chapters explore the communal process of plant evolution and the implications of genetic advances for agriculture and nutrition. A specialized appeal.
