Overview

Written specifically for the horticultural student, this new text presents an ideal introduction to botany for the non-science major. The book's systematic organization around the five-kingdom system effectively covers the botanical basics, while the many illustrations make new scientific concepts easy to understand. By clearly presenting such topics as respiration, fermentation, photosynthesis, and physical properties of protoplasm, the text builds a solid biological foundation for further study in the plant sciences.
