About this book

Evolution and Diversification of Land Plants is a modern approach to understanding the evolution and diversification of land plants. It consists of three sections – origin and diversification of primitive land plants: origin and diversification of angiosperms; speciation and mechanisms of diversification – each section corresponding to a major area of plant evolution. In each case, data from molecular, morphological, and palaeontological approaches are presented, backed by recent progress and new findings, together with proposals for future research. A guide to the latest in plant systematics, heightening awareness of prospective future problems.
