About this book

In his debut book, internationally-recognized blogger and podcaster Matt Candeias celebrates the nature of plants and the extraordinary world of plant organisms.

Since his early days of plant restoration, this amateur plant scientist has been enchanted with flora and the greater environmental ecology of the planet. Now, he looks at the study of plants through the lens of his ever-growing houseplant collection. Using gardening, houseplants, and examples of plants around you, In Defense of Plants changes your relationship with the world from the comfort of your windowsill.

Understand how plants evolve and live on Earth with a never-before-seen look into their daily drama. Inside, Candeias explores the incredible ways plants live, fight, have sex, and conquer new territory. Whether a blossoming botanist or a professional plant scientist, In Defense of Plants is for anyone who sees plant organisms as more than just static backdrops to more charismatic life forms.

In this easily accessible introduction to the incredible world of plants, you'll find:
- Fantastic botanical histories and plant symbolism
- Passionate stories of flora diversity and scientific names of plants
- Personal tales of plantsman discovery through the study of plants

If you enjoyed books like The Botany of Desire or What a Plant Knows, then you'll love In Defense of Plants.
