Trees: A Complete Guide to Their Biology and Structure

Trees: A Complete Guide to Their Biology and Structure

Roland Ennos delves deep into the evolution, structural anatomy and history of trees, whose ancient evolutionary roots stretch back over 350 million years.


Covering huge areas of the globe, trees are found high up in the mountains and low down at sea level. From subarctic woodlands to tropical rainforests, tree variations show how gradual adaptation has allowed them to flourish in many different environments. 


Trees sheds light on our seemingly innocuous companions, and explores the fascinating biology behind the anatomy of some of the world’s tallest living organisms. Ennos analyses the biology of tree cells, and examines the structure of roots, leaves, and everything in between.


This book investigates human usage of trees from humanity’s early history, and contains more than 120 stunning images of specimens from around the world.


If you’re interested in the biology and history of these magnificent, living organisms, Trees offers a fascinating new perspective.
