Seeds: A Natural History

Seeds: A Natural History

by Carolyn Fry, 192 pages with 186 color plates, 6¾x9½, hardcover. If you are reading this review, you probably spend a great deal of time handling seeds, planting seeds, thinking about seeds. Yet most of the time we spend thinking about seeds is spent thinking about where they are going. This book is about how they got here, their wonderful variety and, most crucially, whether we can ensure that they will stick around. We evolved from seed eaters, which seems to set us apart from the other primates. That extra burst of energy set in motion a process that, ironically, threatens to bring us to the end. The artist Glenn Baxter drew fruits of the world in danger, Fry gives us descriptions of seeds of the world in danger and the efforts being made to rescue them. -David Shipman
