Product Details

Praise

Visually stunning, it’s an engrossing overview of Earth’s remarkable and diverse plant life that provides opportunities for ongoing discovery on every page.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Elegantly encapsulating these dizzyingly diverse and ubiquitous wonders, Scott’s photographic illustrations, too, offer astronomical appeal. Complete with an index and sources for suggested reading, this dazzling display is ideal for classroom and coffee-table collections, budding botanists and curious kids, and everywhere—and everyone—in between.
—Booklist (starred review)

A beautifully constructed compendium of plant life from around the world that offers up a visual and informational treat for future botanists and casual browsers alike…The large format, sumptuous artwork, and thoughtful writing put this one a cut above the rest and make this a must-have for any library that can house it.
—School Library Journal

As in companion volume Animalium by Jenny Broom and also illustrated by Scott (2014), the digitally colored images are not drawn to scale but are rendered with as much attention to visual impact as to exact, formal anatomical detail…a big, decorative, eye-filling survey.
—Kirkus Reviews

This title makes a sizable claim to operate as a museum of world plants, and it delivers in a big way…The text is accessible to 3rd grade classrooms (pictures will impress those even younger), yet will still offer interest to secondary grades for botany class or browsing.
—School Library Connection

Containing everything from perennials to bulbs to tropical exotica, this wonderful feast of botanical knowledge is complete with superb cross sections to show how plants work.
—Houston Lifestyles & Homes
