About this book

Assesses the psychological, sociological and physiological responses of people to vegetation in cities and forests, presenting an evolutionary basis for the human attraction to plants.

Lewis presents to the reader convincing evidence that people's dependency on plants encompasses all aspects of who we are as humans -- that, indeed, plants influence us psychologically, physiologically, socially, and spiritually as well as physically and intellectually... Lewis' work is an important contribution. -- HortScience
