Descrizione

“Showcases the many weird and wonderful ways plants adapt to survive and spread their progeny . . . A great book for anyone interested in botany” (The Gardener).
 
Whether it’s an arctic heather that can create subtropical conditions within its leaves, or a dwarf mistletoe that can shoot its seeds up to fifty feet away, plants demonstrate remarkable strategies in coping with and surviving their environments.
 
Plants are often exposed to bitter cold, relentless winds, intense heat, drought, fire, pollution, and many other adverse growing conditions. Yet they are still able to survive and often even thrive. This book showcases these exceptional plants with absorbing information and stunning photos that will inspire a new respect for nature’s innovation and resilience.
 
“From hummingbirds on the high slopes of the Andes to sugarbirds on the South African Cape, Vernon takes the reader on an awe-inducing journey to discover the secret life of pollinators and the plants that depend upon them. . . . You’ll delight in the surprising, unusual, and downright amazing strategies plants use to cope and copulate.” —Sierra
