Popular books featuring palaeobotany are few and far between. I have a cherished copy of Douglas Henderson’s Dinosaur Tree – a wonderful portrait of the life of a tree, with dinosaurs reduced to passersby. (Want to make a documentary, anyone?) So I was pleasantly surprised to encounter Fabio Manucci’s review of this and another book on paleobotany called The Islands of Time. Enough introduction! head over and read the review (googlated into English).
