The ‘old’ Plant Kingdom was structured to reflect supposed evolutionary relationships between plant groupings. However, the alleged sequence of evolution of various plants contradicted their actual order of burial in the fossil record! 2 (Not to mention the complete absence of any fossilized transitional forms.).   Plant Evolution and Diversity. (Book Reviews: An Evolutionary Survey of the Plant Kingdom)Author: Warren H. Wagner.

A plant kingdom is a vast group; therefore, the kingdom is further classified into subgroups. Levels of classification are based on the following three criteria: Plant body: whether the body has well-differentiated structures or not. Vascular system: whether the plant has a vascular system for the transportation of substances or not. This book stands out from the rest for two reasons: 1) it is nicely written for the college learner yet 2) it offers an accurate, easy-to-follow chronology of plant evolution starting with the single cell through movement of plants to land, the Paleozoic forests to the present-day seed plant. This book is an enduring classic for researchers Cited by: Although they are among the most abundant of all living things and provide essential oxygen, food, and shelter to the animal kingdom, few books pay any attention to how and why plants evolved the wondrous diversity we see today. In this richly illustrated and clearly written book, Karl J. Niklas provides the first comprehensive synthesis of modern evolutionary biology as it 3/5(1). Evolutionary adaptations over thousands of years have resulted in forms of exceptional function and beauty, which alight in the pages of this work. A wonderful marriage of art and science, the pages of this book dissect and reveal the stunning structures and forms of plants, taking readers on a journey through the unseen world of the plant kingdom.

evolutionary processes in the plant kingdom Evolution usually refers to the processes by which life has changed through time. The record preserved in the rock is the data base from which interpretations and models are developed to explain that change.   The “old” Plant Kingdom was structured to reflect supposed evolutionary relationships between plant groupings. However, the alleged sequence of evolution of various plants contradicted their actual order of burial in the fossil record! 2 (Not to mention the complete absence of any fossilized transitional forms.). 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 .   Starting with an admirably terse and to‐the‐point overview of plant origins, adaptations and life cycles, the book works its way systematically from cyanobacteria through to the most advanced angiosperms, covering en route the morphology, reproductive development and evolutionary significance of representatives of the major : Howard Thomas.
