Pressestimmen

"Behind its provocative title stands an engaging and beautifully written look at how flowering plants, over more than 100 million years, have 'transformed terrestrial ecosystems, supported the origin of primates, and helped us humans become the masters of our planet.' In a short but sweet overview that can be enjoyed by laypeople and scientists alike, Burger, curator emeritus in the Department of Botany at Chicago's Field Museum, delivers a perfect match to his earlier work, the well-received Perfect Planet, Clever Species. ... Burger convincingly argues that, while plants have changed the world, it's now time for humans, who have gained so much from plants, to protect their future existence."
Publishers Weekly
"Combining a botanist's orderly approach with an environmentalist's comprehensive appreciation, Burger traces the evolutionary history of flowering plants, emphasizing the critical importance their biological functions play in the overall health of our planet. Asking -- and answering -- such basic questions as what is a flower, why are they so varied, and where did they come from, Burger logically guides the reader onto more complex subjects, such as biodiversity, climate change, and agricultural symbiosis....written in an appealing, conversational style."
