About this book

Each of the major groups of plants is described in general order of appearance in the records, from the first giant clubmosses, horsetails and ferns, through to the seed plants and angiosperms, the flowering plants which dominate the landscapes of today.

The centerpiece is an exquisite collection of photographs of fossil plants, culled from collections around the world... an important work, and on the strength of its plates alone should be used as a supplemental reference in any college-level course about the history of life. CHOICE


Contents

Early land plants; club-mosses; horsetails; ferns; early seed plants; modern seed plants; flowering plants; history of land vegetation; highlights of palaeobotanical study; classification of vascular plants.
