The eighth edition of the highly regarded botany textbook "Biology of Plants" by Ray F. Evert and Susan E. Eichhorn offers the most significant revision in the book's history.
Every topic has been updated with information from the most recent primary literature. The chapters have been carefully reorganized, with extensive updating of the Diversity Section and the Angiosperm Plant Body Section. The text also includes new photos, illustrations and chapter openers, making the text even more accessible and engaging.
"Biology of Plants" presents an emphasis on the interrelationships of growth and development, structure and function, and evolution and ecology. A highlight of the new edition is a set of 8 new ecology essays that showcase ecologically relevant stories to bring the concepts to life. They cover a range of topics, from "Google Earth: A Tool for Discovering and Protecting Biodiversity" to the "Doomsday Seed Vault: Securing Crop Diversity" and "Green Roofs: A Cool Alternative".
