Book Title: Biology of Plants

Author: Peter H. Raven, Ray F. Evert, Susan E. Eichhorn

Book Description:

I didn't grow up wanting to be a horticulturist. Actually, I didn't really have an idea of what type of career I wanted to pursue until my senior year in high school. That year I took the plant sciences course as an elective and was intrigued by the world of plants. This led me to declaring horticulture as my major in college.

Biology of Plants by Raven, Evert and Eichhorn was the required text in one of the first courses I took in college. Through the course and book I learned about plant anatomy, physiology, development and diversity. Where I was intrigued before now I was captivated by plants.

A copy of this book has traveled with me throughout the pursuit of my doctorate degree and now has a permanent place on the bookshelf in my office.
