Plants and Fungi: Multicelled Life
This title examines how cells work together to form the huge range of plants and fungi we see around us. It looks at the typical structure of a plant cell, and points out the ways in which this differs from a typical animal cell. It shows how plant cells have become specialized so that they can carry out different jobs, from photosynthesis to reproduction. This book also looks at the differences between plants and fungi, and how fungi and algae can work together to form lichens.
