    About this book. Although they are relative latecomers on the evolutionary scene, having emerged only – million years ago, angiosperms – or flowering plants – are the most diverse and species-rich group of seed-producing land plants, comprising more t genera and over , species. The origin of the term "morphology" is generally attributed to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (–).He was of the opinion that there is an underlying fundamental organisation (Bauplan) in the diversity of flowering his book The Metamorphosis of Plants, he proposed that the Bauplan enabled us to predict the forms of plants that had not yet been .

      The evolution of flowers and flowering plants is therefore both of fundamental significance and of contemporary relevance. The Discussion Meeting reported in this volume presents recent and emerging ideas on the evolution of flowers and their function while also highlighting the influence of Darwin on this by: 2.

    Early Vascular Plants The first detailed vascular plant fossils appear in rocks from middle Silurian, about million years ago. The oldest of these, including a plant called Aglaophyton, appear to have possessed conducting cells similar to the hydroids of mosses. These ancient plants, which are sometimes called prototracheophytes, may have been an evolutionary link between the . Variation and Evolution in Plants is a book written by G. Ledyard Stebbins, published in It is one of the key publications embodying the modern synthesis of evolution and genetics, as the first comprehensive publication to discuss the relationship between genetics and natural selection in book has been described by plant systematist Peter H. Raven as "the most important book .

Takhtajan, one of the foremost authorities on flowering plant evolution, has brought together from the literature and his own studies interpretations of the origin and evolution of various vegetative and reproductive parts of flowering plants.

Starting with growth habit, he continues through leaf and stem structure, including the origin of vessels, sieve tubes, and rays, to flowers. Evolutionary Trends in Flowering Plants 0th Edition. by Armen Takhtajan (Author) out of 5 stars 1 rating. ISBN ISBN Why is ISBN important.

Phylogeny and Evolution of Angiosperms is intended as a summary and review of the many advances made in plant phylogeny in recent years.

The pervading conceit of the book was the molding of Darwin's evolution by natural selection within the.

Colonization of land. Land plants evolved from a group of green algae, perhaps as early as mya, but algae-like plants might have evolved as early as 1 billion years ago. The closest living relatives of land plants are the charophytes, specifically Charales; assuming that the habit of the Charales has changed little since the divergence of lineages, this means that the land plants.

Angiosperm paleobotany has widened its horizons, incorporated new techniques, developed new databases, and accepted new questions that can now focus on the evolution of the group.

The fossil record of early flowering plants is now playing an active role in addressing questions of angiosperm phylogeny, angiosperm origins, and angiosperm radiations.
