   schema:reviewBody ""The Nature of Plants tells how plants adapt to the challenges of their habitats. Illustrated throughout with superb color photographs, it is written in a way that is clear to anyone who wishes to understand the life of plants." "The Nature of Plants takes the reader on a tour of plant habitats from the seashore up into the mountains, and from the tropics to the poles. There are plants that use other plants, climbing on them, strangling some, living in their leafy canopies, or parasitizing them. And The Nature of Plants explores the love-hate relationships that plants have with animals, some feeding on plants but others drawn into serving plants by pollinating them, scattering their fruits and seeds, or being eaten themselves. The mostly hidden associations that plants have with bacteria and fungi are also revealed."--Jacket." ;
