Summary
This is a vibrant, close-up exploration of plants, focusing on the extraordinary and unexpected. Each page or spread focuses on a different plant, from the tiny bee orchid to the mighty strangler fig. Looking at plants from across the globe, specimens featured include carnivorous and poisonous species, plants that provide us with food, materials, or medicine, those who have a special symbiotic relationship with animals or other plants, as well as especially rare or record-breaking species. Among these entries are focus spreads looking at how plants get energy and nutrients, how animals and plants work together, how plants can send out chemical messages, and finally, how to protect plants and their habitats
