About this book

Language: English

Fossil Floras of China Through the Geological Ages summarizes the principal achievements of paleobotanical study since the middle half of the nineteenth century, especially during the forty-odd years after the founding of new China in 1949. The whole text comprises 12 chapters. Taking geological times as the linking line, Fossil Floras of China Through the Geological Ages discusses in separate chapters the overall features and evolutionary history of floras in different geological periods ranging from Silurian to Quaternary, with particular emphasis laid on the systematic analysis and summary of composition, nature, characteristics and correlation division, evolution and phytogeographical provinciality of those floras (based on megafossil plants supplemented partly with fossil sporo-pollen evidence) in different periods, together with a certain number of palaeobotanical studies displaying the distinguishing features of China.
