THE SECRET OF PLANTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT

THE SECRET OF PLANTS IN THE ENVIRONMENT by [RISHIKESH UPADHYAY]

This is an enlightening and educational book that will help readers become environmentally conscious. This book is all about plants, caring for plants, observing how they grow, and planting more. I never knew that reading about plants would be so attention-grabbing and eye-opening until I got a hold of this book. The Secret of Plants in the Environment is the right book for you if you enjoy non-fiction books that can help build the community and much more. The content in the book is refreshing and beneficial to all plant lovers. Every chapter and text in the book is based on facts. The author provides statistics to support claims in the book and also writes about personal experiences.

The Secret of Plants in the Environment has 17 chapters. At first one may feel like the chapters are too many considering the author is talking about similar topics but once you start reading; you understand why Rishikesh divided the book into 17 chapters. You will love this book because of how direct the author is. The author does not add unnecessary text. Every topic in the book is well researched and thorough. Every topic in the book is relevant and every discussion is important and will change the reader’s perception of plants at the end of the reading.

I learned so much that I did not know through the chapters in the book. Some of the topics that I read more than once include the chapters on salts or salinity in plants, waterlogging and plant adaptations, mechanosensing in plants, heavy metal stress in plants, and the response of plants to chemical agents. These chapters made me realize that plants just like pets or human beings react differently to various elements. I enjoyed reading the other chapters too, especially since they were short and easy to complete.

The Secret of Plants in the Environment will expose you to a world of plants you were not aware of. The author uses scientific terms and plant jargon that are interesting to master but they are all explained in detail. This is an intellectually-invigorating book that brings fascinating depth to botany and explores the myriad of ways that plants are affected by environmental changes.

The Nature of Nature: Why We Need the Wild

The Nature of Nature: Why We Need the Wild by [Enric Sala]

In The Nature of Nature: Why We Need the Wild, Enric Sala talks everything nature and discusses conservancy, the importance of protecting the planet, and living responsibly. Having been a marine biologist for decades, Enric Sala pulls from years of experience to provide a sharp and informed perspective on the environment and how man has managed to drastically change nature. As he discusses the wild, animals, plants, and every living thing, one can tell how passionate Enric Sala is about the subject. The agony in his words when addressing the destruction of nature, the joy in his tone when he discusses conservancy and how to preserve the planet’s endangered species makes one fall in love not only with the book but also the work the author has been doing over the years.

Through the lessons and Enric Sala’s stories about his work and personal life the reader is exposed to a world that is so vital to us, yet nebulous. I enjoyed the experiences Enric Sala shared about his line of work. The stories the author gives are eye-opening and will leave you feeling informed about the role humans play in destroying flora and fauna. Not many people get to witness directly how human activity affects animals both on land and in the sea. Enric Sala shares this reality through simple and engaging language that kept me rapt.

Readers will learn a lot about the value of saving the environment and how politics, the economy, and other sectors are affected when the environment is destroyed. Through this book, the author encourages everyone to be an environmental activist in little ways. Modernization and civilization have led to an increase in air pollution. To control this, the author encourages people to adopt new lifestyles and engage in activities like tree planting and cleaning the environment to ensure that the air we breathe and the water fish swim in is not harmful.

The Nature of Nature: Why We Need the Wild comes at a critical time for the planet and should be essential reading. Enric Sala has written a thought-provoking book that distills complex ecological concepts into easily understandable ideas that could save the planet, improve your health, and strengthen the economy.
