      His contributions include monographic studies in the Asteraceae, very early promotion of the burgeoning field of cladistics, strong advocacy for collections, and insights into the origin and evolution of island plants. He is a consummate internationalist, with huge influence in South America.

      In addition to the occurrence in South America (Gonzilez Guzman, ), similar grains are known from the Eocene of Panama (Graham, , p. , fig. 58) and from Paleogene sediments of the Gulf Coast of the southeastern United States [Frederiksen, , p. 48, pl. 1, fig. 17; Elsik, , pl. 2, figs. 35, 36 reports a somewhat similar. Paleobotany, also spelled as palaeobotany, is the branch of botany dealing with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their use for the biological reconstruction of past environments (paleogeography), and the evolutionary history of plants, with a bearing upon the evolution of life in general. A synonym is paleophytology.

With nice diagrams illustrating evolutionary trends. About this book. Paleobotany: The Biology and Evolution of Fossil Plants 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. This paper aroused great attention among palaeobotanists all over the world, and many comments on it were published.

In his "Iconographia plantarum fossilium" he compares the fossil flora with the forests of Indonesia, South America, the Caribbean and Mexico, recognizing that the plants indeed can be used to reconstruct the climate of a tropical past - it is no wonder that geologist Henry de la Beche ( ) collocated "Professor Ichthyosaurus" in a.
