One is talking about seed and plant survival, and as I read one chapter on line, author seems to marvel how plants survive. She has a compelling way of writing about plants/trees in general. The other theme is the under appreciation of woman in research environments. Also interested to know what hows thought about this book


I read it.The tree bits were good but a small part of the book. Mostly about her.

I wondered about that because most of the interview was about the difficulties of being in research, especially if one is a women. I just picked up the book from library and will start reading today. Thank you for responding...Bo

I don't have any idea.
"I love science and it pains me to think that so many are terrified of the subject or feel that choosing science means you cannot also choose compassion, or the arts, or be awe by nature. Science is not meant to cure us of mystery, but to reinvent and revigorate it." by Robert M. Sapolsky
