This heavily-illustrated undergraduate text describes the form, function, and levels of organization of plants. It covers the chemistry necessary for life; the plant cell, its cycle and the organization of the plant body, stem, shoots, and roots; and the concepts of metabolism, respiration, photosynthesis, absorption, reproduction and transport systems. In following sections it describes archaea, bacteria, viruses, fungi, the protists, bryophytes, tracheophytes, gymnosperms and angiosperms. The final chapters are devoted to systems, plant populations and the ecology of the plant community. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
