Darwin's Most Wonderful Plants by Ken Thompson
This book came out in 2019, and the subtitle is Darwin's Botany Today.
In this book, Ken helps us understand Darwin as a botanist.
After taking his famous voyage on The Beagle, Darwin experimented with and observed growing plants at his home in Kent. Carnivorous and climbing plants were a favorite of Darwin's; he was fascinated by their pollination and flower evolution.
Thanks to Ken, we get to know Darwin as a pioneering botanist who was way ahead of his time. Darwin’s work seems totally in step with plant science today: plant movement, hunting, and intelligence.
This book is 256 pages of a side of Darwin that most folks have never known: Darwin as a curious and intelligent botanist.
You can get a copy of Darwin's Most Wonderful Plants by Ken Thompson and support the show using the Amazon Link in today's Show Notes for around $14
