For students, plants are the introduction to life sciences. This encyclopedia introduces the fundamentals -- such as cells, transportation and photosynthesis, and also examines related fields, such as agribusiness, conservation and ethnobotany. The set is fully illustrated and offers marginal definitions, timelines and sidebars throughout.
"There is really little else with which to compare this set; it seems badly needed...Plant Sciences is highly recommended for schools, public library reference collections and even undergraduate-level college and university collections."
