World

Koller sets the stage for an amazing interpretation of the world around us. The Restless Plant is not just a litany of examples of plant movement, although that alone is worth the read, but also an exploration of the mechanisms and physiology that support those movements, the intricacies and beauty of their responses. You will never look at plants the same way again.—Sarah E. Wyatt, Science
