Science is Beautiful: Botanical Life : Under the Microscope, Hardback Book

Science is Beautiful: Botanical Life : Under the Microscope Hardback

Part of the Science is Beautiful series


The plant world has always been appreciated for its visual appeal, but its true beauty can be revealed when you look under the electron microscope.

This collection unearths some of the most wonderful microscopic images of flowers, trees and grasses ever created, now made possible by technology.

We get to see the wonder of pollen, seeds, petals, algae and leaves.

The images are as beautiful as any art. This stunning collection of images can be enjoyed purely as a visual voyage but also as a way to understand more of the science behind the image.

Whether it's the work of a lavender leaf oil gland, the inside of a pine pollen, flower stamen sculptures deep inside a tree bark, or the wonderful patterns of lichen.

Each image will include the scale of the photography as well as the scientific details in layman's terms.
