This study covers plant fossils and their role in geological investigations. Designed to fill a gap in the market, the book presents an analysis of how plant fossils have been used by geologists working in the Palaeozoic. It reviews Palaeozoic plant biostratigraphy on a worldwide basis, allowing their potential for geological work to be properly evaluated. Topics reviewed include the techniques for studying plant fossils, the problems of taxonomy relevant to palaeobotany, and the use of plant fossils for biostratigraphy, palaeoecology, palaeogeography and palaeoclimatology in the Palaeozoic.
