"Raven's 8th edition of Environment offers more detailed content than the Visualizing text for a better understanding and integration of the core environmental systems and to view and analyze the role those systems play. Shorter, but still comprehensive coverage focuses on ethical decision making and key local environmental science issues, requiring readers to think critically about the course material outside of the classroom. Other features include brief text in the comprehensive segment; extensive chapter pedagogy to help reinforce the systems approach; more opportunities to think critically about the how systems intersect and fit together; and new data interpretation questions at the end of each chapter"--Résumé de l'éditeur

Evolution and diversification of land plants by Kunio Iwatsuki ( Book )
6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents modern approaches for understanding the evolution and diversification of land plants, one of the most exciting areas of plant systematics. It consists of three sections: origin and diversification of primitive land plants; origin and diversification of angiosperms; speciation and mechanisms of diversification. These sections correspond to the three major areas in the evolution of plants. In each section, data from molecular, morphological, and paleontological approaches are presented. Each author introduces recent progress and new findings, and proposes future research. For example, the morphological evolution of reproductive organs, or flowers in angiosperms, is now being clarified from the molecular genetic point of view through the study of regulatory genes such as MADS gene family. With this book, readers can readily understand the state-of-the-art in plant systematics and become aware of prospective future problems
