Summary:

Gardening can be frustratingly shrouded in secrecy. Fickle plants make seemingly spontaneous decisions to bloom or bust, seeds sprout magically in the blink of an eye, and deep-rooted mysteries unfold underground and out of sight. Understanding basic botany is like unlocking a horticultural code; fortunately learning a little science can reveal the secrets of the botanical universe and shed some light on what’s really going on in your garden. Practical Botany for Gardeners provides an elegant and accessible introduction to the world of botany. It presents the essentials that every gardener needs to know, connecting explanations of scientific facts with useful gardening tips. Flip to the roots section and you’ll not only learn how different types of roots support a plant but also find that adding fungi to soil aids growth. The pruning section both defines “lateral buds” and explains how far back on a shoot to cut in order to propagate them. The book breaks down key areas and terminology with easy-to-navigate chapters arranged by theme, such as plant types, plant parts, inner workings, and external factors. “Great Botanists” and “Botany in Action” boxes delve deeper into the fascinating byways of plant science. This multifaceted book also includes two hundred botanical illustrations and basic diagrams that hearken to the classic roots of botany. Part handbook, part reference, Practical Botany for Gardeners is a beautifully captivating read. It’s a must for garden lovers and backyard botanists who want to grow and nurture their own plant knowledge.

Summary:

One January morning in 1734, cloth merchant Peter Collinson hurried down to the docks at London's Custom House to collect cargo just arrived from John Bartram in the American colonies. But it was not bales of cotton that awaited him, but plants and seeds... Over the next forty years, Bartram would send hundreds of American species to England, where Collinson was one of a handful of men who would foster a national obsession and change the gardens of Britain forever: Philip Miller, author of the bestselling Gardeners Dictionary; the Swede Carl Linnaeus, whose standardised botanical nomenclature popularised botany; the botanist-adventurer Joseph Banks and his colleague Daniel Solander who both explored the strange flora of Tahiti and Australia on Captain Cook's Endeavour. This is the story of these men - friends, rivals, enemies, united by a passion for plants. Set against the backdrop of the emerging empire and the uncharted world beyond, The Brother Gardeners tells the story how Britain became a nation of gardeners.

Peter Tompkins et Christopher Bird ont rassemblé dans ce livre fascinant tout ce que les recherches nous permettent de savoir sur la sensibilité végétale et sur les rapports entre la plante et l'homme.

Summary:

Most of us think of plants as belonging to one big family, but they don't. There are actually hundreds of different plant families, which botanists have grouped together using what they know of their family histories and genealogy, to bring some sense and order to more than quarter of million different plant species. Using this knowledge, we can teach ourselves to see similarities of characteristics between plants and get a pretty good idea of which family they belong to. GENEALOGY FOR GARDERNERS presents the enormous diversity shown by the many families of plants in a way that is easy to understand, whether one's interest lies in natural history or with horticulture. The superb illustrations make it exceptionally attractive and accessible book. Information boxes on most pages highlight interesting facts, unexpected relationships, botanical curiosities, and notable members of plant family groups. Readers can make sense of the enormous biological diversity of the plant kingdom, by piecing together family likenesses and genealogical connections.

Summary:

Superbement illustré, cet ouvrage didactique a pour objectif de donner une vue d'ensemble de la biologie des plantes mais aussi des autres organismes photosynthétiques comme les algues qui participent à l'élaboration des molécules organiques, les champignons, les bactéries ou encore d'autres micro-organismes dont le rôle est plutôt de décomposer ces molécules. Il décrit la composition, la structure, le fonctionnement, l'origine et l'évolution de ces organismes et met l'accent sur leur complémentarité et les interactions qui existent entre eux et leur environnement. Partie intégrante de cet écosystème global, l'homme, en raison de l'accroissement des populations et du développement de ses activités, exerce, sur ces organismes, des pressions de plus en plus fortes dont les conséquences peuvent être catastrophiques, voire irréversibles. C'est pourquoi le manuel insiste sur la nécessité impérieuse et urgente de réduire ces perturbations tout en assurant à chaque être humain une vie décente. Avec sa structure pédagogique de première force- résumés, mots clés, bibliographie, glossaire-, ce merveilleux volume est destiné aux professeurs et étudiants en biologie, botanique, agronomie et pharmacie. Il s'adresse également à tous ceux qui s'intéressent au maintien de la biodiversité et de l'équilibre du monde vivant.

Summary:

"[Stein] knows what has to be done, but she has also shown a new way to do it. Think of the author as a sort of jujitsu gardener; in her hands the very strengths of weeds are turned to her advantage."--New York Times Book Review "In this manual cum philosophical treatise, Stein discloses an amazing amount of information, from anatomy to propagation, about more than 100 species of North American weeds."--Washington Post Book World From the author of the native gardening classic Noah's Garden: Restoring the Ecology of Our Own Backyard comes My Weeds, a foray into the secret and fascinating lives of the world's most hated plants. By asking of the common weed, "What kind of plant is this? How does it behave? What is it up to in my garden? Can I thwart its plans?" Stein shows how a thorough understanding of the enemy is the gardener's best defense. Incredibly adaptive, weeds are also good teachers, and Stein shows us what they tell us about our gardens and the lives of all plants. She entertains with tales of famous--and notorious--weeds of the world, compares weeding tools and methods, and discusses the uses of weeds. Along the way, Stein also explains the intricate workings of photosynthesis, plant anatomy and reproduction, evolution, and the laws of succession by which nature tries to reclaim the land a gardener has disturbed. First published in 1988, My Weeds was among the first generation of books to advocate the use of native plants, and Stein's discussions of backyard ecology, pesticides, and the threat of exotic species were as groundbreaking then as they are relevant today. A biography of the plant world's most maligned members and a fascinating primer of the most useful aspects of plant biology and ecology, My Weeds is essential reading even for the gardener who never leaves the armchair! Sara Stein is the author of Noah's Garden: Restoring the Ecology of Our Own Backyards and Planting Noah's Garden: Further Adventures in Backyard Ecology.
