About this book

Seeds have influenced evolution and for millennia have influenced and sometimes determined where humans have lived. This book unfolds the history of how, after centuries of investigation, we have finally discovered what seeds do and how they work. It is a scientific detective story with heroes and heroines following clues and finding answers and the author brings to life the eccentrics, explorers, amateurs and highly dedicated professionals who have contributed to our knowledge.
