Environmental apathy, corruption, poor natural resource governance, poverty, and lack of conservation funding remain formidable challenges to tangible conservation in the tropics. Ultimately, our ability to ride the current environmental crisis will de

Evolution and diversification of land plants by Kunio Iwatsuki( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biochemical analysis, especially the sequencing of nucleic acids, has produced improved, objective data on the evolution and diversification of plants, providing an understanding of the rate of change of genes, chromosomes, and embryological features along with their adaptive significance. Parallel research, especially that of fossil fruits and flowers, has established a deeper understanding of the fossil record, and careful studies of the morphology and anatomy of living plants and of molecular systematics have been carried out. When combined, this research has led to new insights that would have been unthinkable just a few decades ago. This monograph ties together these different lines of research and shows how such an approach has provided new insights on plant evolution in an integrated, verifiable context. This context will provide a basis for further investigation, with the goal of producing a well-developed evolutionary system for all plants within the next decade."--Jacket
