Overview

Systematic and Taxonomic Approaches in Paleobotany by Robert A. Spicer

Plant fossils, which provide valuable data for many fields, are usually only poorly preserved and fragmentary remains of the original organism. Their identification is difficult, and their study bedevilled by problems of taxomony and classification never encountered with living plants. This volume contains the papers presented at an international paleobotanical meeting designed to present a complete catalog and description of the varied techniques used in fossil identification and classification. The wide variety of approaches presented here will stimulate further research and provide the necessary information for the application of paleobotanical studies to the more general fields of botany and geology.
