About this book

Language: Dutch

Darwin's botanical work was of great influence on our views on plants, but has largely been forgotten. When hearing the name Charles Darwin, most people think of On the Origin of Species, the book detailing his theory of evolution, or they think of the finches names after him. Only a few people will think of has a botanist. This is odd, as they spent half his career in the miraculous world of botany. In this richly illustrated account Norbert Peeters introduces the reader to Darwin's botanical insights and discoveries in an accessible manner. He places these in an evolutionary context and shows how they still affect the world of plant biology today.

Summary in Dutch:
Darwins botanische werk drukte een groot stempel op onze kijk op planten, maar is in de vergetelheid geraakt. De meeste mensen denken bij Charles Darwin aan On the Origin of Species, het boek waarin hij zijn evolutieleer uiteenzet, en aan ‘zijn’ vinken. Slechts een enkeling kent Darwin als plantkundige. Dat is vreemd, want ruim de helft van zijn loopbaan verdiepte hij zich in de wondere wereld van de botanie. In dit rijk geïllustreerde boek laat Norbert Peeters de lezer op toegankelijke wijze kennismaken met Darwins botanische inzichten en ontdekkingen. Hij plaatst ze in een evolutionaire context en laat zien hoe ze ook vandaag nog doorwerken in onze plantenbiologie.
