Anne Ophelia Dowden meticulously describes and images, in full-color
paintings and delightful black-and-white drawings, the fantastic number of
fruits made through flowering plants.
Using specimens she has accumulated from world wide, she explains
how fertilization happens, how seeds are produced, and the way plants mature
into end result. listed below are over one hundred fifty fruit forms—from dry seed pods akin to the
lily and milkweed, with its tufted seeds, to hard-shelled nuts like hickory
and acorn, and the popular fleshy end result of the cherry, blackberry, cucum
ber, and fig.
Ms. Dowden's minutely designated illustrations and lucid, designated textual content show
the tricky internal strategies of existence in its such a lot elemental seen shape.
