Plants (Discovering the Earth)

Michael Allaby, "Plants (Discovering the Earth)"
Facts on File | 2010 | ISBN: 0816061025 | 240 pages | PDF | 35,6 MB

This new seven-volume "Discovering the Earth" set examines the efforts made by scientists in the fields of environment, environmental protection, and environmental science. Covering a broad range of topics - including the Earth sciences, atmosphere, oceans, ecology, animals, plants, and exploration - the books in this comprehensive set provide a panorama of brief accounts of particular discoveries and the people who made them. These stories explain the problems that were solved, the ways they were approached, and, in some cases, the dead ends that scientists sometimes reached. Ideal for high school and college students and particularly valuable to students of environmental studies, ecology, biology, geography, geology, and the humanities, the books in the "Discovering the Earth" set shed light on the way the scientific aspect of Western culture has developed. Written in clear language and requiring no mathematical knowledge, these helpful books feature sidebars where necessary to explain a particular concept as well as full-color photographs, tables, charts, and further resources.

  • The Father of Botany
  • Herbals and Physic Gardens
  • Botanical Gardens and Herbaria
  • Naming Plants
  • The Plant Hunters
