Opis: How the Earth Turned Green - Joseph Armstrong

On this blue planet, long before pterodactyls took to the skies and tyrannosaurs prowled the continents, tiny green organisms populated the ancient oceans. Fossil and phylogenetic evidence suggests that chlorophyll, the green pigment responsible for coloring these organisms, has been in existence for some 85 per cent of Earth's long history - that is, for roughly 3.8 billion years. In How the Earth Turned Green, Joseph E. Armstrong traces the history of these verdant organisms, which many would call plants, from their ancient beginnings to the diversity of green life that inhabits the Earth today. Using an evolutionary framework, How the Earth Turned Green addresses questions such as: Should all green organisms be considered plants? Why do these organisms look the way they do? How are they related to one another and to other chlorophyll-free organisms? How do they reproduce? How have they changed and diversified over time? And how has the presence of green organisms changed the Earth's ecosystems? More engaging than a traditional textbook and displaying an astonishing breadth, How the Earth Turned Green will both delight and enlighten embryonic botanists and any student interested in the evolutionary history of plants. Armstrong is not only trying to tell the story of plant evolution. He also wants to explain how science works as well as the problems we face in establishing the relationships between the major plant groups and in developing a consistent plant taxonomy based on plant evolution. Thus he not only tells the story of plant evolution but also of plant evolutionary science. He does this with a great deal of humor and in an anecdotal way, which also make the book fun to read. . . . I enjoyed reading the book very much; even as a trained plant scientist I could find new ideas and concepts that I was not aware of. Thus, this book will be a treasure trove for non-botanists as well as for most plant scientists interested in plant evolution; in addition, I strongly recommend this book for students of plant biology and professional scientists. --Burkhard Becker, University of Cologne "Trends in Ecology & Evolution ""
