The Incredible Journey of Plants
The Incredible Journey of Plants is a richly illustrated read in which a leading neurobiologist presents fascinating stories of plant migration that reveal unexpected connections between nature and culture. The author Stefano Mancuso considers how plants convince animals to transport them around the world, and how some plants need particular animals to spread; how they have been able to grow in places so remote and inhospitable as to remain isolated; how they resisted the atomic bomb and the Chernobyl disaster; how they are able to bring life to sterile islands; how they can travel through the ages, as they sail around the world.
