1 Huxley, Anthony; Attenborough, Sir David (Foreword by) Green Inheritance: Saving the Plants of the World
NEW - STILL IN PUBLISHERS PLASTIC. Humans are entirely dependent on plants: We eat them, build with them, burn them for power, breathe the air they maintain, cure our ills with them. Yet we are destroying this fundamental resource at a terrifying rate. This extensively revised and updated edition of Anthony Huxley's magnificent global overview of our plant kingdom portrays the beauty, diversity, and history of wild and cultivated plants, highlighting their profound importance in our lives. With its beautiful color photographs, drawings, charts, diagrams, and superb text, this book describes the role of plants in the global environment and across cultures; shows how plants are used for so many things, and considers their role for us as objects of beauty. Full of intriguing stories about many individual plants, this remarkable book emphasizes just how essential our green inheritance is to the future of humanity. 192 pages, well illustrated. 9" x 10 1/2" tall
