Botanical aesthetics are the visual and embodied modes which inform the perception, understanding, and appreciation of plant life. Green Sense is an interdisciplinary study of human relationships to wild plants and the a€˜cultures of floraa€™ that may characterise a region. The book explores botanical aesthetics through a study of the South-West region of Western Australia; a biodiversity a€˜hotspota€™ of international standing. Through a diverse range of materials, approaches, and perspectives, this title points to the interplay of values involved in cultures of flora, from visual aesthetics and scientific knowledge, to embodied appreciations and sensory entanglements. The book aims to better understand human relationships to wild plants, and offers an intriguing journey through science; poetry; philosophy; ethnography; Indigenous Australian knowledges; and regional tourism and memory studies.Green Sense will appeal to academic researchers, and all those interested in the hidden aspects of the human relationship with plants.Retrieved from 06_614..621.pdf Stegner, W.(1992a).
