About this book

Recent molecular sequence analyses show that the algae are of polyphyletic origins and that their evolution is best explained by tracing the endosymbiotic events that have resulted in the origins of their plastids. This volume provides a thorough and up-to-date account of the major findings in algal, cyano-bacterial and plastid phylogeny.

... Dieses Buch ist ... fur Palaobotaniker sehr wichtig, weil hier die Fortschritte der letzten zehn Jahre zusammenfassend fur die einzelnen Gruppen dargestellt sind, jeweils begleitet von umfangreichen Literaturverzeichnissen. Dem Leser wird also der neueste Forschungsstand prasentiert ... er kann sich informieren, offene Fragen erkennen und feststellen, dass die Systematik mancher Gruppen doch noch sehr im Fluss ist. Ausserdem findet der Leser Hinweise auf notige Forschungen ... Dieses Buch kann allen Interessenten nur empfohlen werden. Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie
