About this book

This book reflects the newest progress in research on the origin of angiosperms. It emphasizes the early Cretaceous and Jurassic materials, rather than later ones, as they are the key periods for the origin of this group. The author integrates multiple techniques, including SEM, TEM, light microscopy, peeling and cladistics, to study the morphology, anatomy and phylogeny of the fossils.
