You might indeed be wearing the world's finest fabric, made from pineapple leaves. Plants for People provides an astonishing amount of information about the plants we encounter every day - the backcloth to our daily lives: plants that feed us, protect us, cure us, entertain us, transport us, clothe us, entertain us and more. But it also has a serious message: the survival of every person on earth depends on plants, and their importance will increase in the coming decades. Our challenge will be how best to manage this spectacular plant/human support system.
