Booknews
Capon draws on his long experience teaching introductory botany for nonscientists, to present a survey of the entire field in lay terms and oriented to the experiences and needs of the gardener and horticulturist. Excellent drawings and photographs, many in color. We eagerly await the sequel: Gardening for Botanists. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
