Review from previous edition This is one of those rare books that one can honestly label 'outstanding' Amazon

Kathy Willis is Director of the Biodiversity Institute in the Zoology Department at the University of Oxford and a Professorial Fellow at Merton College. She gained her first degree in Geography and Environmental Science from the University of Southampton, and a Ph.D. from the University of Cambridge in Plant Sciences. In her early postdoctoral career, Kathy held a Selwyn College Research Fellowship and then a NERC Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Department of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge. This was followed by a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in the Godwin Institute for Quaternary Research, University of Cambridge. Kathy moved to a University Lectureship in the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford in 1999 where she established the Oxford Long-term Ecology Laboratory in 2002 and was made a Professor of Long-term Ecology in 2008.
Jennifer C McElwain received her B.A. in Botany from Trinity College Dublin in 1993 and her PhD in Paleobotany in 1997 from Royal Holloway College, University of London. She was a Natural Environment Research Council Post Doctoral research associate between 1997 and 1998 and a Leverhulme Postdoctoral Fellow between 1998 and 2000. McElwain held the position of Assistant Curator of Paleobotany at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago between 2000 and 2003 and was Associate Curator of Paleobotany from 2003 until 2006, when she took up her current position as Lecturer in Plant Palaeobiology and Palaeoecology in the School of Biology and Environmental Science at University College Dublin. She is a Research Associate of the Field Museum and an Adjunct Associate Professor at Northwestern University, USA.

It was surprising for me to receive this book from India, through DHL, and with a very fast delivery.

This book has only one drawback: its small font, which makes reading it not as agreable as it deserves.

But it is an outstanding book, very well written, on an essantial and fascinating topic. It deserves being read by anyone seriously interested in the history of life on earth, and by anyone interested in plants.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The book for plant evolution 22. Juli 2014
Von tyrannomyrmex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
For anyone interested in the origin and evolution of land plants, this is the book. Well written and illustrated. The authors cover the earliest plants, the changes to colonization of land, the first Devonian forests and the posterior evolution of seeds and flowers. The evolution of grasses and the problem of extinctions (rarely treated in other books) are also included. The illustrations are fine and well done. The last full color plates, depicting biomes from Carboniferous to Cenozoic are fantastic!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A worthy successor to Gifford and Foster, 1988 24. April 2014
Von Esme F. Hennessy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Hurrah! The science of Botany is NOT dead. The integration of information on biomolecular methodologies; of photosynthetic pathways and of Earth history together with the more-traditional exploration of the plant fossil record make this publication invaluable. This book should be prescribed reading for every student of any of the biological disciplines for without plants there could be no animal life as we know it on planet Earth.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A concise and balanced survey of current understandings of plant evolution 12. August 2014
Von Kipp Hunter McMichael - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A great college-level introduction to plant evolution. Given its trim size, it does not have the depth of breadth (both in text and illustrations) of larger volumes. What it offers instead is a concise and balanced survey of current understandings of plant evolution.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You are interested by evolution...read this essential book. 7. Januar 2016
Von Dominique Roche - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Anyone who wants to know about evolution should read this book. It is indeed a complete review of anything previously published on fossil plants and plant evolution, as well as a comprehensive presentation on Earth history, continental drifts and origins of life.
Color tables 1 through 8 are remarkable and give an illustration of successive Earth’s biomes and their plant compositions for the last 359 million years. However, they should not be relegated to the end of the book! They should be right in the middle of the book, as the reader can look at them repetitively and timely ‘anchor’ different groups of plants throughout all the geologic eras and periods.
The authors are very balanced and cautious in their review of all hypotheses concerning geological events, possible influences on plant life and evolution details. After decades of ‘in-fighting’ between animal evolutionists -who seemed to want everyone to believe they are better scientists than Darwin and Wallace!-this book is so refreshing. It puts these never-ending arguments regarding phyletic gradualism vs punctuated equilibrium, especially after mass extinctions, in quite a different perspective… as plant groups seemed to survive quite well through all these periods of mass extinctions. Consequently, it should be a mandatory reading for any biologist interested in evolution. After all, plants alone increased the Earth atmosphere with oxygen, making this planet livable for animals.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is the best textbook for an undergraduate course in plant evolution 20. Januar 2016
Von E. Bobich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is the best textbook for an undergraduate course in plant evolution. The information is presented clearly and the explanations of evolutionary processes are excellent. I especially enjoy how evolutionary changes in the plant phylogeny and community compositions are explained using climate information. I cannot imagine a better book for my course.
