A comprehensive text for plant conservation that easily could have read as a text-book, but was definitely more entertaining and written so anyone could understand and professionals could still learn something from.
Author Timothy Walker brings us through the beginnings of plant life as we know it through modern day conservation methods using the 2020 Strategy for Global Plant Conservation. This book will walk you through the five objectives and sixteen targets for the Strategy. A very down-to-earth writing style is employed and there is not a lot of gloom-and-doom that is sometimes typically included in conservation books, but there is definitely hope. Included are specific examples of how each conservation method is actually being employed today and ways everyday gardeners can help the effort.
Good for students, gardeners and anyone interested in plant life.
