Summary
Burger (curator emeritus, Field Museum of Natural History Department of Botany, Chicago) refers to Loren Eiseley's essay "How Flowers Changed the World" in his introduction. This book carries forward some of Eiseley's themes and offers a thorough look at the role flowering plants play in the living world. He writes engagingly for non-scientists about evolution, pollination, reproduction, and flowers as an energy resource for most of the biosphere and as a vital link in the chain of life.
