Description

In Plant Science: An Introduction to Botany, Dr. Catherine Kleier invites us to open our eyes to the phenomenal world of plant life and to the process she calls “Natura Revelata”, the joy of celebrating and learning from the secrets of nature.

As Dr. Kleier shares her knowledge with contagious excitement for her subject, she emphasizes the middle ground: Instead of focusing on cell microbiology or the study of ecosystems and habitats, she stresses the basic biology, function, and the amazing adaptations of the plants we see all around us. Dr. Kleier proposes and establishes that there is pleasure to be found in being able to identify and understand the workings of that tree outside the window.

With almost 400,000 known species and thousands more identified every year, the variety of plant life is almost overwhelming - from the microscopic to the largest organism on Earth. In this course, you will learn about the fascinating adaptations that have allowed plants to thrive in almost every corner of the world and the unique plants that have evolved as a result.

You’ll learn about the latest discoveries regarding plant communication, the myriad ways they manage and shape their own environments, and why botanists are still debating what it really means to be a unique species.

plants with passion

quite enjoyable, very in-depth. sometimes hard without the visuals - but overall a great tour of a topic I knew little about. if you are looking to grow a better tomato - probably not the book for you. if knowing the reason leaves change their color in the fall would be enlightening - you found a winner.

I guess I need to see it

Because this is an intro to botany, and I took all my science courses 2 decades ago- I feel it really would have benefitted from an accompanying PDF. Sciencey stuff is easier to understand when you can see it- and if you already know what they are talking about, you probably don't need an intro class. but- it IS what I purchased, an audio lecture. That said, it was way more interesting than the bumper stickers on the freeway. I wish the narrator hadn't tried so hard to be funny. Corny jokes can help make information stick sometimes, so I get the tactic- but it was a LOT of corny jokes, so it diluted the affect. If you're easily annoyed by that stuff, this may not be the way to go.

Not excatly what I wanted but it answered question

Easy read, the jokes very bad but good at the same time, I kinda stayed to see what other joke she would make, answered questions I had and some I didnt know I had, gave me a lot of little facts I can throw out at parties and such. will probably give a second listen.
