New Book: Bizarre and Incredible World of Plants

There is a new book on the market by W. Stuppy et al. the  "Bizarre and Incredible World of Plants", published by Papadakis Publishing house (also available at amazon ) which also features my work of bees seeing plants in UV very differently than how we do. 

Wolfgang Stuppy is the seed morphologist for the Millennium Seed Bank Project at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and it has been a pleasure and honor to have been asked to be part of his amazing book. His images are so stunning, a great coffee table book just for viewing pleasure, but also for the scientifically interested reader, as it also has plenty of explanatory text in it.

Some detailed images:
