About this book

From the smallest moss to the tallest giant redwood, the swathe of bluebells in a spring woodland to the colours of a New England fall, their diversity, success and ubiquity is plain. Yet few of us are conscious of the microscopic, universal building blocks of this empire, the cells.

In Green Universe, eminent botanist Stephen Blackmore takes us on a journey through time and space – from the origin of the first cell more than three billion years ago, through their complex intertwined history, to the myriad forms they now take and the perfectly-adapted organs and organisms they make up.
