Book Description
The Emerald Planet is the tale of our world`s past - and future - as revealed by plants. Newly found clues in the fossil record show plants to be powrful agents of change, moulding the Earth`s climate and affecting the evolutionary path of life over the immenity of geological time. These clues reveal how plummeting carbon dioxide levels removed a barrier to the evolution of the leaf; how forests once grew on Antarctica, and how giant insects flourshied; they strenghen fascinating fossil evidence for an ancient ozone hole, and offer new explanations for past bouts of global warming.
