About this book

Language: Contributions are in English or German

This volume is a collection of 22 scientific papers in paleobotany, especially taphocoenoses. It is dedicated to Friedmann Schaarschmidt, paleobotanist of many years with Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg in Frankfurt am Main, on the occasion of his 65th birthday and therefore covers a wide range of his scientific and personal interests.

Among the papers is set on Late Palaeozoic (four contributions), Mesozoic (six contributions), and Tertiary (nine contributions) plant taphocoenoses, but also single papers on extant cruciferous plants, the classification of fossil plants, and even Miocene vertebrate teeth. Most of the papers are dealing with selected plant taphocoenoses, e.g. from the Permian of China, the Middle Eocene of Messel, and the Miocene of Styria, and distinct plant fossils or selected taxa. Three of the contributions are exclusively devoted to palynostratigraphical problems in the Upper Devonian, Triassic/Jurassic-boundary strata, and the Lower Eocene, respectively. A number of the papers is dealing with selected plant taphocoenoses in their geological and stratigraphical context. The taxa treated by individual papers are ranging from bryophytes of the Bitterfeld Amber over Mesozoic ferns and sphenophytes to gymnosperms (Carboniferous pteridosperms and Triassic coniferous wood) and angiosperms (Miocene aquatic angiosperms and extant Cruciferae).
