Description of The Green World Horticulture First Edition (PDF)

The Green World Horticulture 1st Edition by Gail M. Lang is a great horticulture book available in (eBook) PDF download. As a young university instructor directing biology tutorials in a classroom that looked out over a wooded area, I would ask each group of students to look out the window and tell me what they saw. More often than not, the question would be met with a blank, questioning look. Plants are so much a part of our environment and the fabric of our everyday lives that they rarely register in our conscious thought. Yet today, faced with disappearing rain forests, exploding population growth, urban sprawl, and concerns about climate change, the productive capacityof global agricultural andforestry ecosystems is put under increasing pressure. Understanding plants is even more essential as we attempt to build a sustainable environment for the future.

Human history has been strongly influenced by plants. The rise of agriculture in the Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia brought previously scattered hunter-gatherers together into villages. Ever since, the availability of land and water for cultivating plants has been a major factor in determining the location of human settlements. World exploration and discovery was driven by the search for herbs and spices.

The Green World series of Horticulture opens doors to the world of plants. The series describes what plants are, what plants do, and where plants fit in the overall scheme of things. This Horticulture book shows us how humans have learned to cultivate plants for use as ornamentals and to produce fruits and vegetables. We also learn in this book the impact of horticultural methods on the environment and the importance of developing sustainable methods for future food production and protection of the environment.
