The War Between Trees and Grasses (2017)


‘…The War Between Trees and Grasses is a fantastic biological history of these two great groups, how they evolved through time, and shaped our planet…This book would have been useful as an undergraduate to provide a fundamental understanding of the major differences between the two groups and I highly recommend it as a plant biology text for students.’  From the review by Laura Crook in Botany One 

Written and published by Howard Thomas

There’s a co-evolutionary bond between trees, grasses, and people which has its origins in the earliest era of life on land. This book traces the history of this edgy relationship, revealing its decisive role in the physiological, psychological, and social development of modern humans.
