Arthaud -

With the collaboration of Éliane Patriarca.

Format 19.3 x 26.7 cm. 128 pages.


Botanist and explorer of the equatorial rainforests that he has criss-crossed for forty years, sketchbook in hand, Francis Hallé invites us in this Atlas of poetic botany to an illustrated journey to meet extraordinary plants. From the countless expedition notebooks that line the shelves of his office in Montpellier, he has extracted a sample of the most amazing specimens.

From Codariocalyx motorius, the dancing plant, to the Solanaceae of Argentina, these underground trees of which only a carpet of leaves can be seen on the ground, their modes of development and adaptation often exceed our understanding to enchant our imagination. Exuberant, enigmatic, endowed with surprising aptitudes, the plant wonders presented in this unexpected cabinet of curiosities plead in favor of the safeguarding of tropical forests today seriously threatened.
