Flora Unveiled

The Discovery and Denial of Sex in Plants

Lincoln Taiz and Lee Taiz

  • Provides a new theory to explain a longstanding problem in the history of botany: why did it take so long to discover sex in plants, and why was it such a contentious topic for another 150 years after the theory was proposed?
  • Covers an extremely broad range, from the Paleolithic to the nineteenth century
  • Represents a broad synthesis of multiple fields and disciplines, including botany, history, anthropology, archaeology, linguistics, literature, history of science, gender studies, comparative religion, and philosophy
  • Richly illustrated and aimed at the general audience, which sets it apart from other books in this field
