First published in 1932, this small volume by A. C. Seward was intended to present an overview of plant-life in a way which could be understood by readers with little or no knowledge of botany or other branches of natural science. By describing in non-technical terms what plants are and how they work, Seward is able to show the wealth of interest the subject offers, whilst also highlighting the fundamental principles of biology and the usefulness of scientific research. Including a number of illustrations, a glossary, and a guide to common equivalents of scientific measurements, this book will be of value to anyone interested in popular science from the early twentieth century.
