This book re-examines patterns of relationship between plant life history traits in phylogenetic perspective. It argues that because evolution is a branching process, traits are not randomly distributed across taxa and that as such, analysis of trait correlations cannot treat species as independant data points. It then discusses the use of phylogeny to reconstruct the evolutionary pathways of traits.
'Plant Life Histories has arrived at an apt moment ! I enjoyed readingPlant Life Histories and recommend it not only to everybody interested in evolutionary ecology, but also to ecologists who may be classsified as 'too ecological'.' Martin Zobel, Trends in Plant Science
