The Romance of Plant Life (project Gutenburg)

Recommended Posts

I have come across this charming volume in Project Gutenburg's online e-Book library:

 

G. F. Scott Elliot - The Romance of Plant Life.

 

Link: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/45930/45930-h/45930-h.htm#Page_201

 

There are very interesting descriptions of succession, development of peat bogs, and many references to carnivorous plants throughout - although primarily a work on the subject of 'ethnobotany' one would imagine, rather than botany, horticulture or ethnography.

 

It really repaid a few hours' study!
