Media reviews
This book should be read by anyone interested in angiosperm origins. - Plant Science Bulletin; ...this is still one of the most comprehensive reviews of the subject to date. - Plant Science Bulletin; ...the cover of this volume does little to tell the reader of the varied and significant research results that are included in the pages of this book. Flowering plant origins, phylogenies and evolution is a complex but interesting field of study. The authors have done a fine job of showing this to be true. - Am. Assn. of Stratigraphic Palynologists
