The book describes the author's year-long, three-times-per-week, mile commute through Delmarva and tells us about the flora and fauna he sees on these drives, and then goes into a description of their attributes, their relationship to the environment, and the history of their development and distribution.

The origin of a land flora during the Upper Ordovician–Lower Silurian border (± millions years ago) represents a significant evolutionary event in the history of life. The subsequent evolution of a diverse auto trophic land flora created the conditions necessary for the diversification of a terrestrial hetero trophic fauna (Behrensmeyer Cited by: Phylogenetic studies favour a single origin of land plants from charophycean green algae (Box 1). Based on the ecology of living species, a freshwater origin of land plants seems likely, but direct evidence from the fossil record is inconclusive as mid-Palaeozoic charophytes are found in both freshwater and, more commonly, marine facies

The term is usually capitalized to distinguish it from the use of "flora" to mean the plants rather than their classic and modern Floras are listed below. Traditionally Floras are books, but some are now published on CD-ROM or. Colonization of land.

Land plants evolved from a group of green algae, perhaps as early as mya, but algae-like plants might have evolved as early as 1 billion years ago. The closest living relatives of land plants are the charophytes, specifically Charales; assuming that the habit of the Charales has changed little since the divergence of lineages, this means that the land plants evolved.

BOOK REVIEWS The origin of a land flora Under this title Professor BOWER has written a volumeI which must be regarded as the culmination of his important studies during the last twenty years.

It is a formal and amplified statement of the views advanced in his series of five papers entitled "Studies in the morphology of spore-producing. Other articles where The Origin of a Land Flora is discussed: Frederick Orpen Bower: work, summarized in his classic The Origin of a Land Flora (), have done much to coordinate paleobotany and plant morphology in a widespread study of plant evolution.

Bower also wrote The Ferns, 3 vol. (–28), Size and Form in Plants (), and Primitive Land Plants (). The origin of the sporophyte in land plants (Embryophytes) is a fundamental evolutionary problem.

All organisms, except prokaryotes, undergo regular sexual reproduction that involves a regular alternation between meiosis and fertilization. In land plants it is expressed by two alternating generations. The origin of a land flora, a theory based upon the facts of alternation Item Preview remove-circle Share or Embed This Item.

From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Flora family.

Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting.

Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to. The origin and early evolution of land plants in the mid-Palaeozoic era, between about and million years ago, was an important event in the history of life, with far-reaching consequences.
