Description

Seeds and fruits carry out vital jobs for all flowering plants. New plants are created from seeds and fruits help to protect and spread those seeds. This book provides readers with a complete and comprehensive understanding of the role of seeds and fruit, their structure and how they are brilliantly designed to do these jobs. Clear diagrams, engaging text, and stunning photographs are used to explain the huge variation in seeds and fruits, what seeds and fruit are for, the parts of a flowering plant, how seeds are made, what's inside a seed, what seeds need to germinate, different types of fruit, methods plants use to disperse seeds, and our relationship with seeds and fruits. A wide range of examples present readers with seeds and fruit they will be familiar with plus spectacular and unusual examples from around the world. These demonstrate what different seeds and fruit have in common and some incredible seed and fruit adaptations that allow plants to survive in different conditions and habitats. Two simple activities help stimulate thought, reinforce learning, and bring the concepts to life.
