Overview

Cells are life's building blocks. A cell cannot be seen without a microscope, yet this tiny chemical package holds all the ingredients of life. All living things are made up of millions and millions of cells working together. This revised and updated edition of the Cells & Life series explores all aspects of cells, including brief overviews of important scientific achievements in the field.

Plants and Fungi examines how cells work together to form the huge range of plants and fungi we see around us. It looks at the typical structure of a plant cell, and points out the ways in which this differs from a typical animal cell. It shows how plant cells have become specialized so that they can carry out different jobs, from photosynthesis to reproduction. This book also looks at the differences between plants and fungi, and how fungi and algae can work together to form lichens.
