Botanical Atlas: The Lung of the Planet

Parramón

Why not start at the beginning? This atlas of botany offers the possibility of know the world of vegetables, from those that are invisible to the naked eye, such as microscopic algae, to the gigantic trees that form the dense forests of the hot and humid regions of our planet. It constitutes, therefore, a very useful instrument to realize the great variety of forms and styles of plant life that we can find under different climates and soils.

Botanical atlas

The set of different sections that make up this work form a veritable compendium of botany. They consist of multiple sheets and numerous figures, schematic although rigorous, showing the main characteristics of the anatomy, physiology and reproduction of the different plant groups and species. These illustrations, which constitute the central nucleus of this volume, are complemented with brief explanations and notes that facilitate the understanding of the main concepts, as well as with an alphabetical index that makes it easy to locate any question of interest.

The Well-Tempered Garden

Christopher Lloyd

Although there is no translation into Spanish, I did not want to stop mentioning this classic among gardening books: The Well-Tempered Garden by Christopher Lloyd, one of the most respected gardeners of Great Britain, updated for the 21st century.

This is a classic work of a gardener who combines a passionate love for his work with critical intelligence. The Well-Tempered Garden is packed with the kind of information enthusiastic gardeners crave, from planting, weeding, and the joys of propagation to annuals, water lilies, and vegetables. Acclaimed as a masterpiece when it was first published, it is so fresh, enlightening, and necessary for 17th-century gardeners. XXI as it was 40 years ago.
