Life of a Leaf

The Life of a Leaf by Steven Vogel

When most people look at a leaf, they just see a green thing hanging down. When scientist Steven Vogel looks, he sees a scientific “everyman,” an organism whose functions can help explain science. He uses the leaf as his protagonist in a new book called “The Life of a Leaf” (University of Chicago Press/2012).

Host Frank Stasio talks to Steven Vogel, James B. Duke Professor Emeritus in biology at Duke University about his new book.
