Editorial Reviews

"Graham has provided us with a very well-written and broadly encompassing tome of the last 100 million years of North American vegetation. Graham proceeds in an orderly fashion by providing us with background information and concepts, for example in present-day climate and vegetation/climaterelations. A significant part of the book occupies itself with discussions of methodologists currently used in the studies of paleobotany/palynology, and these discussions include their limitations as well as their strengths." -- Jack A. Wolfe, American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists,Inc., Sept. 2000
