BOOK: A Garden of Marvels: How We Discovered That Flowers Have Sex, Leaves Eat Air, and Other Secrets of Plants
Danielle Harangody, Palm Beach (FayEtte Bikinis)
For centuries, much has been known about human and animal physiology. But the study of plants, called botany, is a relatively new field. 
Plants and trees are a mystery to us. They do not seem to move except in the wind, they do not have mouths we can see, and we do not actually see them eat. They reproduce in mysterious ways, quite unlike animals. Yet, they are the basis of all animal life on the planet.
Author, gardener, and guest Ruth Kassinger
Now gardener Ruth Kassinger, author of Paradise Under Glass, has a new book tracing the history of botany. It makes it accessible to anyone who wants to understand house plants, backyard vegetables, and larger questions about ecology and the environment. LISTEN
