Basic Plant Science Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Structure and Function of Plants
by Jennifer W. MacAdam

Structure and Function of Plants provides unique coverage of the basics of plant anatomy and physiology.

The book opens with descriptive chapters that acquaint readers with key plant structures such as roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. The remaining chapters describe the inner working of plant life, looking at how plants extract water and nutrients from the soil, convert sunlight into carbohydrates, and manage to survive and reproduce while rooted in one spot.

Each chapter is highly illustrated with vibrant full-color images that aid in reinforcing and demontrating key concepts.
