“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
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.
Figures are missing in the Kindle version. Obviously, this is not a review of this book, or of Darwin, who was a genius. This is a review of Kindle edition of this book, where pictures are missing, which makes it a frustrating read.
