In its essence, science is a way of looking at and thinking about the world. In The Life of a Leaf, Steven Vogel illuminates this approach, using the humble leaf as a model. Whether plant or person, every organism must contend with its immediate physical environment, a world that both limits what organisms can do and offers innumerable opportunities for evolving fascinating ways of challenging those limits. Here, Vogel explains these interactions, examining through the example of the leaf the extraordinary designs that enable life to adapt to its physical world. In Vogel’s account, the leaf serves as a biological everyman, an ordinary and ubiquitous living thing that nonetheless speaks volumes about our environment as well as its own. Thus in exploring the leaf’s world, Vogel simultaneously explores our own.

Leaf tells the story of a single sycamore leaf from a bud through the changing seasons to the autumn and the fall of leaves into winter. The story, though simple, aims to show how the life cycle of a seemingly insignificant thing, such as a leaf, adds to the whole sustainability of life on our planet. It can be read as a simple children's story or as the basis for understanding our environment. Proceeds will be donated to the Woodland Trust.
