Description

Darwin published the Origin of Species nearly thirty years after his voyage on the Beagle, and he spent most of that time experimenting with plants at his house in Kent. A brilliant and revolutionary botanist, his observations and theories are often only now being confirmed and extended by modern research. Like Darwin, Ken Thompson is fascinated and amazed by plants’ Triffid-like qualities of movement, hunting and intelligence. Here he presents Darwin’s pioneering work on evolution as drawing on the greenhouse as much as the Galapagos.
