"Praise of the plant"

What do we know about plants, really?

Through a rich array of examples, many illustrated in the author's elegant and distinctive style, this book offers a new look at botany. This scholarly yet fun book examines the qualities that make plants unique, so different from animals. Experienced in both the academic and in-the-field sides of science, the opinionated Halle delightfully makes the case that plants differ so profoundly from animals that questions are raised about the meaning of individuality and the nature of life and death.

 

A remarkable lesson in biology encouraging us to urgently give the plant the place it deserves.

 

Francis Hallé:

Botanist, he was a professor at the Institute of Botany at the University of Montpellier. Specialist in the ecology of tropical forests, he led the missions of the famous "treetop raft". He guided Luc Jacquet in the Amazon rainforest to make his documentary, It was a forest, in 2013.

"In our world of fluff, money, advertising, noise, pollution and brutality, what better testimony than that of plants, beautiful and useful, discreet and autonomous, silent and completely non-violent?"

"Drawings that show the beauty and fragility of Earth"

Zaria Forman's large-scale compositions of melting glaciers, icebergs floating in glassy water and waves cresting with foam explore moments of transition, turbulence and tranquility.

Join her as she discusses the meditative process of artistic creation and the motivation behind her work.

 

"My drawings celebrate the beauty of what we all stand to lose," she says. "I hope they can serve as records of sublime landscapes in flux."

"The Plant Messiah"

Savored aboard the truck, this book by Carlos Magdalena is a tribute to floristic biodiversity.

 

Carlos Magdalena of Kew Gardens is not your average botanical horticulturist. He's a man on a mission to save the world's most endangered plants from destruction and thieves hunting for wealthy collectors. He is a plant messiah.
From the planet's tiniest waterlily - the Nymphaea thermarum - to Huarango trees with roots over 50 metres long, Carlos has a miraculous ability to bring breathtakingly beautiful plants back from the brink of extinction. He has travelled to the most remote and dangerous parts of the world - from the mountains of Peru to isolated Indian Ocean islands to the deepest Australian outback - in search of the rarest exotic species. Then, back in the Tropical Nursery at Kew, he uses pioneering, left-field techniques to help them grow.
Now he's here to spread the gospel. The Plant Messiah is the inspirational story of a man who has devoted - and risked - his life to save incredible species, all in the name of making this Earth a greener and happier place. Amen to that.
