"Handsome and handy. . . . Learn here about achenes like rhubarb seeds, which are dispersed by the wind. Or samaras, like the seeds of the English elm, found in the middle of two transparent green wings."-- (06/05/2018)
"A well-written primer on seed anatomy, evolution, and use, including conservation. . . . It will be useful to both the professional botanist and amateur, as well as anyone curious about how nature looks and works."--Huntia
