This book provides up-to-date coverage of fossil plants from Precambrian life to flowering plants, including fungi and algae. It begins with a discussion of geologic time, how organisms are preserved in the rock record, and how organisms are studied and interpreted and takes the student through all the relevant uses and interpretations of fossil plants. With new chapters on additional flowering plant families, paleoecology and the structure of ancient plant communities, fossil plants as proxy records for paleoclimate, new methodologies used in phylogenetic reconstruction and the addition of new fossil plant discoveries since 1993, this book provides the most comprehensive account of the geologic history and evolution of microbes, algae, fungi, and plants through time. * Major revision of a 1993 classic reference * Lavishly illustrated with 1,800 images and user friendly for use by paleobotanists, biologists, geologists and other related scientists * Includes an expanded glossary with an extensive up-to-date bibliography and a comprehensive index * Provides extensive coverage of fungi and other microbes, and major groups of land plants both living and extinct

There are important and very interesting branches of science, of which little is known to the public. This is what happened with paleobotany. From time to time, there are popular books and articles about extinct animals, but fossil plants are unlucky. Books that tell what paleobotany is, who are paleobotanists, what they work for and why, can be counted on fingers because the number of them is so low. Meanwhile, the history of the plant world is no less instructive than the history of the animal world. Paleobotany has a huge store of information that is of great importance for solving both general biological problems and purely practical questions of geology. Without active participation of paleobotanists, it was not possible, for example, to master all the coal basins. However, the study of fossil plants is not only important, but also very interesting, even fascinating.Written at a high scientific level and at the same time quite popular, this book will undoubtedly be interesting and useful to anyone who is interested in the distant past of our planet. However, it is not only that, but this century is the age of atomic physics, space flights and molecular biology where many seem to be focused on the future. Paleontology (and even more so paleobotany) is becoming more and more the focus of some eccentrics and is farther and farther away (and maybe - and Just lagging behind) "real" science, the full movement of scientific thought, the burning and fights of brilliant hypotheses and ideas. This book is a vivid answer to this deeply erroneous view.This book covers a wide range of issues. It tells about the most ancient plants and modern subtle methods of studying them. In addition, this is not a popular translation of a paleobotany textbook. In this book it is shown that the vegetable world of the past is important, but also how facts were obtained, and important generalizations were born. The reader will become, as it were, a witness of many years of discussions in which paleobotanical data played an important role. The author touches upon the most general theoretical problems, having expressed many original thoughts on them.There is no doubt that not only paleontologists, paleobotanists and geologists, but also the widest circle of readers, from physicists to lyricists, will read the book with interest and benefit.
