    schema:reviewBody ""The Structure and Function of Plants provides an important introduction and overview of the anatomy and physiology of plants. The chapters are designed to provide the reader with valuable insight into how plants work and respond to their growing environment. The information is presented in a user-friendly format that provides thorough explanations of key plant structures and how they interact with their environments to survive and flourish." "The Structure and Function of Plants opens with descriptive chapters that acquaint readers with key plant structures such as roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. The remaining chapters describe the inner workings of plant life, looking at how plants extract water and nutrients from the soil, convert sunlight into carbohydrates, and manage to survive and reproduce while rooted in one spot. Each chapter is highly illustrated with vibrant full-color images that aid in reinforcing and demonstrating key concepts." "Providing a unique coverage of the basics of plant anatomy and physiology, The Structure and Function of Plants, is a valuable resource for introductory students, professionals, and plant enthusiasts."--Jacket." ;
