Book Review

If you're a regular reader, you may notice that I'm trying to get a bit more elaborate with my tags for posts. I've added 'medicinal plants' and 'edible plants' and a bit on etymology, which is clearly a favorite of mine.

Lately though, I've also discussed plant form in greater detail. Yesterday's post mentioned nectar spurs and we've covered bracts more than once.

You can get a fair amount of information online about plant morphology, but I have recently fallen in love with this book, Plant Form: An Illustrated Guide to Flowering Plant Morphology. It's an accessible read and, at the same time, it's an incredible resource for detailed, scientific information. If you have even a passing interest in morphology, I'd definitely recommend it.
