Unlike animals that can run from danger or migrate to a more hospitable environment, plants must rely on adaptations that permit them to survive where they are. The fascinating mechanisms that plants employ to survive in challenging environments are clearly explained and illustrated in this primer, suitable for young and mature readers alike. This book is only available through print on demand. All interior art is black and white.
