About this book

There is more to a seed than the plant it will someday become: seeds, seedheads, and pods have their own dazzling beauty that sometimes even surpasses that of flowers. Bitter melon seeds resemble a handful of rubies. And butterfly vine seeds look exactly like those delicate insects captured in mid-flight.

Seeds also come with fascinating stories. Lotus seeds sent into orbit by Chinese scientists came back to earth mysteriously altered. And fava beans have a Jekyll-and-Hyde personality: they can cause the debilitating condition known as favism, but they combat malaria.

In these stunning pages you'll gain an understanding of how seeds are formed and dispersed, why they look the way they do, and how they fit into the environment. Seeing Seeds will take you to strange and wonderful places. When you return, it's safe to say that you'll never look at a seed the same way again.
