Every gardener is a scientist. Pollination, native plants, ecology, climatology--these are just a few of the scientific concepts that play a key role in a successful garden. While the ideas are intuitive to many gardeners, they are often discussed in unfamiliar scientific terms. The Dictionary of Science for Gardeners is the first of its kind to provide practical scientific descriptions for gardening terms. Highlighting 16 branches of science that are of particular interest to gardeners, with entries from abaptation to zoochory , Michael Allaby explores more than 6,000 terms in one easy-to-use reference.
