Paleobotany provides rich and complex insights into the flora of this planet for the past 400 million years. Sadly, there has not been a decent introduction to this fascinating discipline since Chester Arnold’s much dated Introduction to Paleobotany. This book fills an important gap for fossil plant collectors and students.
