The Emerald Planet: How plants changed Earth's history (Oxford Landmark Science)

The Emerald Planet: How plants changed Earth's history (Oxford Landmark Science) by David Beerling
English | May 12th, 2017 | ISBN: 0198798326 | 406 pages | EPUB | 7.03 MB

Plants have profoundly moulded the Earth's climate and the evolutionary trajectory of life. Far from being 'silent witnesses to the passage of time', plants are dynamic components of our world, shaping the environment throughout history as much as that environment has shaped them. In The Emerald Planet, David Beerling puts plants centre stage, revealing the crucial role they have played in driving global changes in the environment, in recording hidden facets of Earth's history, and in helping us to predict its future. His account draws together evidence from fossil plants, from experiments with their living counterparts, and from computer models of the 'Earth System', to illuminate the history of our planet and its biodiversity.
