Media reviews
'[...] I found this book to be a useful refresher course on aspects of plant life history evolution that I had not considered for a while, and an excellent introduction to some topics about which I knew little. I recommend this book to postgraduate students (in the more affordable paperback edition) and to established researchers. It's a useful resource to allocate to your personal or institutional library.' Plant Systematics and Evolution, 232 (2002)
