Paleobotany and the evolution of plants by Wilson N Stewart( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paperback Re-issue. Originally published in 1993, this second edition of a successful textbook describes and explains in a refreshingly clear way the origin and evolution of plants as revealed by the fossil record and summarises paleobotanical information relevant to our understanding of the relationships between the major plant groups, extant and extinct. As in the first edition, the text is profusely illustrated with line illustrations and half-tones. For those students with little knowledge of plant structure and morphology there is a brief resume of those features of extant plants that will be needed to gain a better understanding of the fossil record. Summarizing charts are also used to help students visualise the interpretative material. The quantity of illustrations in this second edition was increased. There are more photographs of actual fossil material and reconstructions of many ancient plants. All of the summarizing charts were updated, and they reflect fresh ideas about the relationships the temporal distributions of the major plant groups. Fresh ideas and theories pertaining to topics such as the origin and evolution of eucaryotes, the evolution of ferns, the origin of seeds, and the origin and early evolution of gymnosperms and angiosperms are included, as is the cladistics method and its results. Paleoecology is a theme in the second edition, with discussions ranging from the Precambrian to the Tertiary and a chapter wholly devoted to the paleoecology of Pennsylvanian coal swamps. One of the major additions was a chapter discussing the paleobotany of the flowering plants, a topic given only a brief treatment in the first edition
