To save biodiversity and feed the future, first cure 'plant blindness'

From our perches in the urban jungle—or even in the leafier parts of suburbia—we often have a tough time naming the last plant we saw. Even if we just ate part of it. This is a symptom of "plant blindness," a term coined two decades ago by researchers who showed that modern civilization is perilously disconnected from the plant kingdom. Our blindness has progressed even further since then, to the
