Comprehensive review of the history of tropical rainforests on a long-term geological timescale, commencing with the origin of the angiosperms over 100 million years ago, which today overwhelmingly dominate these forests.
No other book contains such an in--depth study of the history and evolution of rain forests set in a geological framework...this will stand as a definitive treatise on the subject. (Biologist, November 2000) "This book gives an unsurpassed state of the art account and should be used and read by all students of tropical rain forests, vegetation history and history of Angiosperms" (Blumea, Vol 44/2, 1999) "...will be of interest to all concerned with tropical rain forests." (Bois et Forest des Tropiques, Vol 265, 2000) "...The quality and the high number of illustrations ...as well as a well--selected, although not exhaustive, bibliography, makes this book enjoyable to read." (Journal of Quaternary Science, July 2003)
