This book serve as an excellent springboard for those ready to explore the seemingly fascinating field of smoke-related seed germination, ecology, evolutionary and physiology. The authors provide a comprehensive review of research in their compilation of details on 1,355 species tested for their response to smoke and smoke-related products. This work is aimed at scientists investigating this phenomenon as well as land managers who can apply these findings in the field and students prepared to push the boundaries of experimentation on seeds. Staff and volunteers at the Chicago Botanic Garden, as well as other institutions, were instrumental in making this significant book possible. - Adele Kleine, volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
