Abundant gorgeous electron micrographs and other photography coupled with easy to understand scientifically accurate written material make this book a winner in my collection of nature books. I learned amazing things about pollen - especially interesting since I'm allergic to so many of them. Otherworldly visuals make the written info come to life and the writing beautifully illuminates the mysteries of what you're looking at; A scientist/artist pairing made in heaven. Worth every penny!
This book and the companion book "Seeds" will wow both professionals and layman. Buy it just for the beauty of the superb photos or for the detailed data. Lay these books out on the coffee table and you can be sure they will be picked up over and over again. The photos mezmerize with the sheer magnitude of nature's design.
