Book Review: The Secret of Plants in the Environment by Rishikesh Upadhyay


If you are looking for a scientific view of the life of plants in different environments, then The Secret of Plants in the Environment is a book to consider. 

Rich in scientific details, the author's knowledge of and passion for the subject matter is evident. Filled with charts, photos, and interesting quotes, the reader comes to learn how plants are impacted by things such as temperature change, chemicals, light, pollution, drought and more. 

As would be expected in such a body of work, it cites other research articles and books on the topic, and includes a healthy list of suggested reading materials. 

As a hobby gardener, I was interested in this book because it helps increase yields. The challenge for someone like me, who is more brown thumb than green, is that there is so much in-depth information that was beyond me. Some understanding of botany would be helpful. 

Regardless of my limited knowledge, The Secret of Plants in the Environment is a fascinating read. It takes a while to digest all the included information, but if you're seriously looking at becoming more self-sustaining, this is a book you'll want to read through.
