Have you ever seen a plant that is covered in hairs? Striking captioned, close-up photographs, including those of the appropriately named woolly lousewort, a pollen-dusted honeybee, and a germinating seed, complement accessible diagrams of plant anatomy. Each titled spread, such as “Not Just for Eating!” and “Dropping, Shaking, and Bursting,” covers a different aspect of the topic. Text boxes provide additional context and fascinating information (did you know scientists were able to germinate 32,000-year-old seeds that were discovered frozen deep in ice in Russia?). Two hands-on activities help readers gain a comprehensive view of the material. Back matter contains a glossary, book and Web-site suggestions for further reading, and an index.
