When Plants Took Over the Planet: The Amazing Story of Plant Evolution (2021) by Chris Thorogood

Notes: Join our friendly group on the fourth Thursday of February, April, June, September and November from 1:00pm – 2:00pm. Meetings will continue on Zoom in the winter but we may attempt an in-person and/or hybrid meeting in the spring. Our meetings focus on an eclectic variety of topics related to plants and the natural world. We purposely choose general topics to allow members to find materials that interest them and so that there is less demand on a limited number of copies of a particular book. When a topic or a theme (rather than a single book) has been offered, members are asked to read on or as many of the suggested books as they like. To prepare for Book Club meetings, check out the Yosef Wosk Library and Resource Centre at the VanDusen Garden Visitor Center, your local libraries and bookstore for books, ebooks and audiobooks. You are also welcome to conduct your own research online.
