About this book

Textbook which offers a new natural classification system. It begins in the Proterozoic Era, when bacteria and blue-green algae first appeared, and continues through the explosions of new marine forms in the Helikian and Hadrynian Periods, land plants in the Devonian, and flowering plants in the Cretaceous.
