Sample: “What does language do? Or, what does culture do? Language and culture are non-genetic mechanisms for increasing the number of qualities across individuals, and language and culture... More > also increase the capacity for intraspecific assortative mating across individuals in the human species (by increasing the number of dissimilarities and categories of similarities across individuals in the human species). It is interesting to consider functional analogies amongst animals and plants: Birdsong and feather colors in bird species, and the colors and shapes of angiosperm flowering plant species play similar functions in these species, i.e., they increase the number and differentiation of characteristics across individual organisms, thus increasing the capacity for assortative mating across individual organisms in bird species (intraspecific assortative mating), and increasing the capacity for assortative mating across angiosperm species and insect, bee, and bird species (interspecific assortative mating)."< Less
How Plants Make Flowers By Richard Stout
eBook (ePub): $2.99
A great biological mystery over the past 100 years has to do with what induces plants to make flowers. Young angiosperms don't have flowers, they make just roots, shoots and leaves.

A major clue in solving this mystery happened about 100 years ago when scientists discovered evidence for a flower-inducing signal, produced in the leaves, that they named florigen. This book is a summary of what is currently known about the biology of florigen and flowering, written by someone who has been teaching the subject to college students for nearly 30 years. It's also a book about how and why plants tell time, because this is part of the story. And, just for fun, there's some speculation based on recent scientific evidence about the origin and diversification of flowering plants.< Less
