Editorial Reviews

Review

“Are they needed? To be sure. The Darwinian industry, industrious though it is, has failed to provide texts of more than a handful of Darwin's books. If you want to know what Darwin said about barnacles (still an essential reference to cirripedists, apart from any historical importance) you are forced to search shelves, or wait while someone does it for you; some have been in print for a century; various reprints have appeared and since vanished.”
-Eric Korn,Times Literary Supplement

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Book Description

Charles Darwin collaborated with his son Francis on this book, which closely examines a variety of plant processes in order to derive universally-applicable facts about their behaviour. It develops Darwin's earlier work on evolution, and identifies key features of plants that have enabled them to adapt to different environments.

For those who are curious about botany, or those well versed in it. This book is not only an interesting read but is great with learning more about the basics of plant life.
