Dwyer clarifies our largely-emotive language towards weeds: the problem is ours, rather than the plants’. He calls for a more rational approach to them: We can’t blame the weeds for their successful evolutionary strategies (ie, being taken up and cultivated by humans). He also presents 24 plants, now regarded as weeds, which have been used as food by prehistoric man onwards.
