Item description for Atlas of Fossil Plant Anatomy in China by Cui Jinzhong...
This atlas describes and illustrates the anatomical structures of fossil plants, including 54 species of ferns, gymnosperms and angiosperms in China. Photographs of light and scanning electron microscopes show details of epidermal cuticle, ground tissues and vascular structures of leaves, stems, roots, sporangia and seeds. Land vascular plants originated in the late Silurian and early Devonian, about 400 million years ago. Most vascular plants have been adapting well to terrestrial environments by changing their configurations; most historical plants are now extinct.
