Palaeogeography and Palaeobiogeography: Biodiversity in Space and Time

Palaeogeography and Palaeobiogeography: Biodiversity in Space and Time

1st Edition

Paul Upchurch, Alistair J. McGowan, Claire S.C. Slater
October 12, 2016

Biogeography represents one of the most complex and challenging aspects of macroevolutionary research, requiring input from both the earth and life sciences. Palaeogeographic reconstruction is frequently carried out by researchers with backgrounds in geology and palaeontology, who are less likely...

The New Taxonomy

The New Taxonomy

1st Edition

Quentin D. Wheeler
April 09, 2008

Finalist for 2009 The Council on Botanical & Horticultural Libraries Literature Award! A Fresh Look at Taxonomy The most fundamental of all biological sciences, taxonomy underpins any long term strategies for reconstructing the great tree of life or salvaging as much biodiversity as possible....

Neotropical Savannas and Seasonally Dry Forests: Plant Diversity, Biogeography, and Conservation

Neotropical Savannas and Seasonally Dry Forests: Plant Diversity, Biogeography, and Conservation

1st Edition

R. Toby Pennington, James A. Ratter
May 25, 2006

More often than not, when people think of a neotropical forest, what comes to mind is a rain forest, rather than a dry forest. Just as typically, when they imagine a savanna, they visualize the African plains, rather than those dry woodlands and grasslands found in the Neotropics. These same...

The Changing Wildlife of Great Britain and Ireland

The Changing Wildlife of Great Britain and Ireland

1st Edition

David L. Hawksworth
June 26, 2003

Periodic comprehensive overviews of the status of the diverse organisms that make up wildlife are essential to determining trends, threats and future prospects. Just over 25 years ago, leading authorities on different kinds of wildlife came together to prepare an assessment of their status of a...

Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution

Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution

1st Edition

Quentin C.B. Cronk, Richard M. Bateman, Julie A. Hawkins
April 18, 2002

A benchmark text, Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution integrates the recent revolution in the molecular-developmental genetics of plants with mainstream evolutionary thought. It reflects the increasing cooperation between strongly genomics-influenced researchers, with their strong grasp of...

Morphology, Shape and Phylogeny

Morphology, Shape and Phylogeny

1st Edition

Norman MacLeod, Peter L. Forey
February 07, 2002

Generally, biologists and mathematicians who study the shape and form of organisms have largely been working in isolation from those who work on evolutionary relationships through the analysis of common characteristics. Increasingly however, dialogue between the two communities is beginning to...

Brachiopods

Brachiopods

1st Edition

Howard Brunton, L. Robin M. Cocks, Sarah L Long
November 29, 2001

The growth history of a brachiopod is entombed in its shell, but research on fossil and living brachiopods has generated unanswered questions about these marine invertebrates. Several contributors to Brachiopods Past and Present comment on their differing structures and morphological detail. They...

Major Events in Early Vertebrate Evolution

Major Events in Early Vertebrate Evolution

1st Edition

Per Erik Ahlberg
February 15, 2001

A multi-author volume Major Events in Early Vertebrate Evolution examines the origin and early evolution of the backboned animals (vertebrates)-the group which comprises all fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals, including ourselves. This volume draws together evidence from fossils, genes...

Molecular Systematics and Plant Evolution

Molecular Systematics and Plant Evolution

1st Edition

Peter M. Hollingsworth, Richard M. Bateman, Richard J. Gornall
August 19, 1999

Molecular Systematics and Plant Evolution discusses the diversity and evolution of plants with a molecular approach. It looks at population genetics, phylogeny (history of evolution) and developmental genetics, to provide a framework from which to understand evolutionary patterns and relationships...
