About this product
- DescriptionHow did plants get to be the way they are? How different would things have been if the wrong kind of pollinators had got the upper hand? Why are Latin names so complicated, and why Latin anyway? Giving answers to such questions and more, this book shows how a little botanical knowledge can bring not just better results, but also peace of mind.
- Author BiographyKEN THOMPSON is a plant ecologist and Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield. He has written over 100 articles in scientific journals, but has always wanted to write something that might be read by more than twelve people. Having been a keen gardener for many years, he has become increasingly interested in the ecology of gardens and the promotion of science to the general public. He writes a regular column on the science of gardening for ORGANIC GARDENING magazine and never watches television gardening programmes.
