Fossil Plants (Smithsonian's Living Past)De (autor) Paul Kenrick, Paul Davis
en Limba Engleză Carte Paperback – December 2004
This complete guide to fossil plants explains both the lives of ancient plants and why certain plants became fossilized. Kenrick and Davies trace the evolution of land plants, ferns, conifers, and their relatives, the flowering plants. Interwoven are snapshots of landscapes and environments of various periods, focusing on plant and animal interactions. The included photographs present these ancient, sometimes delicate, pieces of shale in a unique way, and Kenrick and Davies explain both what they were and what story they tell about the past.
Paul Kenrick and Paul Davis are paleobotanists with The Natural History Museum, London. Kenrick is author of The Origin and Diversification of Land Plants, and Davis is the author of Wild Orchids of Britain and Europe.
