About this book

This book proposes that an understanding of the psychological, physiological, and social responses of people to plants can play a significant role in improved physical and mental health for both individuals and communities. It identifies research priorities and methods by which horticulturalists can work with social scientists to understand and utilise people-plant relationships.
