7 Anderson, John M. & Anderson, Heidi M. Heyday of the Gymnosperms - systematics and biodiversity of the Late triassic Molteno fructifications
Pretoria National Botanic Institute 2003 1919795987 / 9781919795980 Pictorial laminated boards Very Good 
Well illustrated, very large tall quarto, pp viii, 398, pictorial laminated boards. A tiny mark to the bottom edge and to the front endpaper, otherwise virtually as new. SCARCE. A heavy book - extra postage will be needed. [This book is based on extensive fieldwork and collections in the Karoo Basin of South Africa and provides the most comprehensive insight so far into extinct seed plants from the Mesozoic of the southern hemisphere. Large numbers of specimens have been used to delimit species and careful note has been taken of associations between different fossil species. A key feature is the focus on fossil seed plant reproductive structures, which are represented by 35 genera and more than 80 species. The book paints a vivid picture of the diversity of life in the Molteno flood plain 230 million years ago and documents the habitats in which modern groups such as mammals, conifers and beetles started to emerge.]

Vegetation and the Terrestrial Carbon Cycle - modelling the first 400 million years, Beerling, D.J. & Woodward, F.I.
11 Beerling, D.J. & Woodward, F.I. Vegetation and the Terrestrial Carbon Cycle - modelling the first 400 million years
Cambridge University Press 2001 0521801966 / 9780521801966 First Edition Boards Very Good 
Illustrated with charts and plans, large 8vo, pp x, 405, extremely clean internally, boards showing very slight signs of use. [Plants have colonised and modified the World's surface for the last 400 million years. In this book the authors demonstrate that an understanding of the role of vegetation in the terrestrial carbon cycle during this time can be gained by linking the key mechanistic elements of present day vegetation processes to models of the global climate during different geological eras. The resulting interactive simulations of climate and vegetation processes tie in with observable geological data, such as the distributions of coals and evaporites, supporting the validity of the authors' approach. Simulation of possible conditions in future centuries are also presented, providing valuable predictions of the status of the Earth's vegetation and carbon cycle at a time of global warming.]

Teide Volcano : Geology and Eruptions of a Highly Differentiated Oceanic Stratovolcano, Carracedo, Juan Carlos & Troll, Valentin R.
20 Carracedo, Juan Carlos & Troll, Valentin R. Teide Volcano : Geology and Eruptions of a Highly Differentiated Oceanic Stratovolcano
Heidelberg & New York Springer 2013 3642258921 / 9783642258923 First Edition Pictorial boards Very Good 
Illustrated, large octavo, pp xiv, 279, pictorial boards, a very good copy, almost as new. [Teide Volcano has many different meanings: For the Guanche aborigines, who endured several of its eruptions, it was Echeide (Hell). Early navigators had in Teide, a lifesaving widely visible landmark that was towering over the clouds. For the first explorers, Teide was a challenging and dangerous climb, since it was thought that Teide's peak was so high that from its summit the sun was too close and far too hot to survive. Teide was considered the highest mountain in the world at that time and measuring its height precisely was a great undertaking and at the time of global scientific significance. For von Buch, von Humboldt, Lyell and other great 18th and19th century naturalists, Teide helped to shape a new and now increasingly 'volcanic' picture, where the origin of volcanic rocks (from solidified magma) slowly casted aside Neptunism and removed some of the last barriers for the development of modern Geology and Volcanology as the sciences we know today. For the present day population of Tenerife, living on top of the world's third tallest volcanic structure on the planet, Teide has actually become "Padre Teide", a fatherly protector and an emblematic icon of Tenerife, not to say of the Canaries as a whole. The UNESCO acknowledged this iconic and complex volcano, as "of global importance in providing evidence of the geological processes that underpin the evolution of oceanic islands". Today, 'Teide National Park' boasts 4 Million annual visitors including many 'volcano spotters' and is a spectacular natural environment which most keep as an impression to treasure and to never forget. For us, the editors of this book, Teide is all of the above; a 'hell of a job', a navigation point on cloudy days, a challenge beyond imagination, a breakthrough in our understanding of oceanic volcanism that has shaped our way of thinking about volcanoes, and lastly, "Teide" provides us with a reference point from where to start exploring other oceanic volcanoes in the Canaries and beyond.]
