About this book

This book presents an important collection of new research that sheds new light on many aspects of the evolutionary patterns of gymnosperms, angiosperms, and pteridophtes. The book includes a new complete chloroplast genome sequence study, a method that induces the systemic silencing of target genes in the Ceratopteris gametophyte, a study of how herbicide treatments reduce fern densities and create the establishment of regeneration, an analysis of an EST dataset from G. biloba that reveals genes potentially unique to gymnosperms, a study of episodic rate acceleration in the ancestral grasses accompanied by adaptive molecular evolution, a comparison of DNA barcoding techniques, a new analysis of cycad ESTs that has uncovered conserved and potentially novel genes, a new look at the climate and vegetation in eastern North America during the Pleistocene and other regions, and much more.
