In the ongoing fight against climate change, plastic pollution, and diseases, scientists are turning to an unlikely ally―Plants to the Rescue!

Everyone knows plants are pretty cool. They create oxygen for us to breathe (fairly essential), provide us with trees to climb, and give us pretty flowers to put in vases. But it turns out that plants can do a whole lot more than that too! In this brilliant botany book by podcaster, TikToker, and plant professor Dr. Vikram Baliga, get ready to drop your jaw on the floor when you find out about:

• The spinach that can detect landmines AND send emails
• The fig trees used to create living bridges
• The glow-in-the-dark plants that might one day light your home

You’ll also learn about the prickly cactus that can be turned into an eco-friendly bag and the fungi that likes to feed on oil spills.

Perfect for anyone who loves nature and wildlife, as well as the scientists of the future―you won’t look at plants and trees in the same way again!
