Concentrating on the interrelationships between plants and humans, explores the development of plant life from seed to seedling to maturity and reproduction, including the role of light, hormones, temperature, and biological clocks.

Facts on File
A plant grows by taking in carbon dioxide from the air and water, as well as nutrients, from the soil. Using light energy from the sun, a plant turns these simple materials into more complex organic molecules that add to its increasing size. Plant Development explores this natural process, from the plant as a single cell to a mature organism, giving students a reference point for their understanding of the complex changes in both form and function of a plant's development. This is a vital tool for students and teachers of plant biology.
