"The Secret of plants in the environment " by Dr. Rishikesh Upadhyay focuses on positive and negative effects of stress on the growth of plants. His deep analysis on the topic opens before us a wide array of information regarding the concerns, challenges, external stress factors faced by the flora.

He also gives insights into the beginning stages of plant cycles, environmental stress physiology and adaptation mechanisms, all covered in a total of seventeen chapters, with each chapter beginning with a noteworthy quote. Moreover, the use of tables, pie charts and other informative illustrations gives more emphasis to each chapters.

Besides serving the purpose of delight and arousing curiousity, the book is a repository of knowledge for nature lovers and all who loves to know in depth about the secret of plants. The well packed pieces of information provided in the book will be a true treasure for aspiring scientists and research scholars in the field of Botany. That being said, let me also tell you, its not a beginner's guide, but a cascade of knowledge for advanced readers!!

If you are looking to read a well-researched book on plants, then this is for you. Highly recommended to students and professionals in the field of environmental science.

Reviewed in India on October 26, 2020
This book really helped me a lot. My mom loves the plants and after reading this book now I can tell my mom what affects our plants and can tell her some tips for the natural growth of our plants.

This book is recommended to plants lovers and who want to explore and study plants. It seems like an Academic book but everything in this book about plants and their development has been sorted out in the simple language.

The content is well researched. That's a short read better if you read it slowly to get the information properly. And kudos to the illustrations and pictures that make it easier to understand the processes and what the author wants to convey.

So what are waiting for? Grab it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Caring for Plants.

Plant analogy is one of the most important fields of study if we take a look at the well being of the environment. This book The Secret of Plants In The environment takes good approach to make people understand the importance of caring plants in the environment, if Global warming and Pollution are to be the stopped with urgent immediacy. One of the best aspects that I like about this book is that every chapter has quoted some wonderful words related to plants in the environment by various scientists from the field of botany. This work has taken a beginners approach to make students and general readers understand the behavior of plants and how they are to be treasured by the human society and the environment. The chapters which I like the most in this book are the chapters on Mechanosensing in Plants, Temperature in Plant Change, Responses of plants to light and Electric Stimulus to Plants. According to me, these chapters with it's use of pictorial representation and flow chart of plant seeds and their ways towards germination and growth, has become one of the best and most important aspects of the book that I urge all the readers to concentrate upon. This book is a brilliant work of science and though I am not a science student, this book was highly enjoyed by me while I was reading it and helped me understand how to take good care of work. This book also deftly underlines how governments and communities of people should work to achieve a healthy plant biosphere and environment. And also, for science students this book is an academic excellence in the sense that it provides certain helpful guidance also towards how plants behalf in chemical reactions as well.

This book gives you vast knowledge about plants and how it survives when it undergoes environmental changes, temperature fluctuations, pollution, heavy metal stress, heat stress and so on.
It shows how the author has dedicated himself to get the well researched book for everyone.

Also, it gives a strong base idea about photosynthesis, germination phase of pluses seed and how the leaves become yellow due to drought stress and more over at last it mentions suggested reading on a relevant topic to know more about them.

“This plant represents what’s happening inside of you. The world, like the soil, is cold and dark – layered with a history of destruction and death. You were planted in this world to rise and above it. Do you not see? The very existence of this darkness gives you the opportunity to become a light to the world.”
-Seth Adam Smith
This is the first thing I read from this book and I would say it could not have started better. I really liked this quote. Coming to the book, this book is about Plants and how they change or affected by the environment. It has 17 chapters, each explaining different factors like Temperature, Heat, pollution, and aspects about plant growth and survival like mineral nutrients, Freezing, their adaptive methods. It also has illustrations at times, which helps to understand the concepts better.
I would suggest going slow with this book or read a few chapters per day in order to actually enjoy and also intake as much information as possible. Because this book is so informative and to read in one sitting can be overwhelming, which can also lead to missing out on the content. I thought this would give me a textbook vibe, but I am glad it did not. But yeah, this is informative but not in a (boring) textbook kind of way, this applies only if you are genuinely interested in plants and have basic knowledge about them. It does get technical often. But the terminologies were explained towards the end. It may disrupt the flow, but in the end, it is all about learning. Isn’t it?
I would recommend this book if you have done science or really interested in Horticulture or just someone who likes plants, enthusiastic to learn something new. But I felt like the target audience is mostly people from scientific backgrounds, especially Botany. So, consider that before picking this up.
