The Biology of the Cycads


This thoroughly referenced, well-illustrated book discusses all aspects of cycadology. Cycads, a small group of ancient palmlike seed plants noted for their beautiful foliage and often brightly colored cones and seeds, are believed to have been among the first seed-bearing plants, dominanc worldwide until about 70 million years ago, when flowering plants took over. In recent years, interest in cycads has increased. Many cycads are endangered species, including some that seem to have survived virtually unchanged since the Mesozoic era. Cycads, now at risk of being lost forever, offer information on the origins and evolution of seed plants. The Biology of the Cycads is illustrated with numerous maps, diagrams, and drawings, as well as more than 350 photographs, in black and white and in color.
