Ikin, Ed

Rare Plants explores what makes the world’s most uncommon plants so exceptional, and by what means they have become so scarce. These plants have drawn the fascination of plant explorers, botanists, scientists and gardeners for centuries – and in a race against time to conserve the world’s plant biodiversity, organizations such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, are deploying incredible science to save and document them. Forty rare and endangered species are explored through over 200 images sourced from the incomparable archives at Kew accompanied by illuminating and authoritative text by Ed Ikin, director of Kew’s wild botanic garden at Wakehurst. Capturing the rarity and beauty of the natural world, Rare Plants is a gorgeous book for any plant lover.
