As concern for the environmental increases, the role of the plant kingdom in the balance of ecosystems has become key. This book explains how various types of plants absorb water, light, and nutrients to grow. Basic scientific concepts are elaborated in the context of the many different types of plant structures, with illustrative diagrams and sidebars showing the many adaptations distinct species have developed for survival in their surroundings. Furthermore, critical thinking questions help readers discover features common to all plants’ anatomy and their purpose in each plant’s growth.
