The vegetation of Antarctica through geological time / David J. Cantrill, Imogen Poole.

Title: The vegetation of Antarctica through geological time / David J. Cantrill, Imogen Poole.
Author(s): Cantrill, David J.
Poole, Imogen.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Cambridge: Cambridge University Press
Abstract: Provides detailed overview of development of Antarctic vegetation from Devonian period to present day, offering insights into breakup of Gondwana. Includes details of specific floras and ecosystems in context of changing geological, geographical and environmental conditions, alongside comparisons with contemporaneous and modern ecosystems. Demonstrates how palaeobotany contributes to understanding of palaeoenvironmental changes in Southern Hemisphere over this period.
