Suggested resources for self-education?
My wife and I have both become very interested in botany from a book, Botany for Gardeners (ISBN 978-0-88192-655-2). We're both just marveling at the simultaneous diversity and similar nature of how plants have adapted and evolved.
Can you recommend any resources, especially books or sites that "take apart" plants and identify the adapted individual parts of plant species, at different stages of maturity? This is purely an individual academic pursuit, but it's nevertheless amazing to discover just how and why these plants we've seen and recognized for our entire lives have adapted they way they have.
