Why People Need Plants
This book explores the crucial role that plants play in the everyday lives of all of us - readers are introduced to those areas that are likely to stimulate their interest in plants. Plants and their products are important not just as staple foods and drinks but also increasingly as biofuels, bioplastics, medicines and even for catching criminals and in combating climate change.
The use of genetically modified staple crops for starving populations and the importance of conserving the diversity of our natural heritage both within the UK and globally is also covered.
