"...The well-written, well-illustrated book contains instructive figures and tables, and has a comprehensive bibliography. This is an excellent reader or text for undergraduate or graduate students...Cantrill and Poole have set a high standard for future synthetic work in paleobotany, and have crafted a volume that is useful for both students and professionals. Highly recommended." - M.S. Zavada, Seton Hall University, CHOICE, September 2013
The only book detailing the relationship between changes in Antarctic vegetation through geological time and the impact of earth system processes such as continental break up and climatic change on the evolution of the biota. A valuable reference for researchers and students in Antarctic palaeobotany and terrestrial palaeoecology.
