Romance of Plant Life, The by SCOTT-ELLIOT, George Francis

Romance needs not always indicate a love story. In the series “The Library of Romance”, authors look at the romantic side of science. The different books cover all different disciplines, including chemistry, astronomy, engineering, and, as in this case, biology.

In this volume, G.F. Scott Elliot walks us through the romantic side of plant life. How do plants move towards the light, what are the dangers to little saplings, how can parts of plants be used for medicine, and why are some of them delicious and others poisonous? Listen to this book to find out. – Summary by Carolin
