Discover all of the amazing ways plants, trees, and fungi are helping to solve some of the world's biggest problems in this book by plant scientist Dr. Vikram Baliga.

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

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, find out about the spinach that can send emails, the fig trees used to create living bridges, and 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 algae that could be used to clean up oil spills!
