KIRKUS REVIEW

Anyone who merely wants to learn about seed dispersal will be reluctant to wade through pages of explanation about photosynthesis and chlorophyll, styles and stigmas, endosperms and germination, and those who don't mind will likely be put off by such information as ""We trade seeds with other countries. They may travel in ships, on trains, in trucks, or in airplanes."" In short, this suffers from many of the same limitations as Joan Rahn's Plants That Travel (KR, 1973), with a slightly more straightforward text but a format that is no more attractive.
