Here, Vogel explains these interactions, examining through the example of the leaf the extraordinary designs that enable leaf to adapt to its physical world. In Vogel's account, the leaf serves as a biological everyman, an ordinary and ubiquitous living thing that nonetheless speaks volumes about our environment as well as its own. Thus in exploring the leaf's world, Vogel simultaneously explores our own. -- from back cover."@en ;
