"The Private Life of Plants has already been viewed by 60 million Britons....And they stayed riveted for...five weeks to watch plants digest mice alive, strangle their hosts, trick male bees into copulating with their flowers, or ignite forest fires with chemicals to give their seedlings a better start in life. Vivid lives of hectic, electrifying action emerged, and even the hundreds of botanists consulted for the series found themselves gaining new insights into plant behavior.

An excellent book, detailing the wonder of the plant kingdom and the different adaptations made to be the species which not only survives but thrives. The pictures are beautiful and clear. Buy the video too - the narration and time lapse photography are both excellent.
I am not a typical planty person and so after recieving this book as a present, I was not sure if I'd appreciate it. How wrong I was, it deals with many aspects of plants, such as there need to reproduce, to travel, to feed etc. But it looks at them as if they were an animal in there hunger to survive. Altogether an exceptional read, offering a beautiful way to understand plants.
