Oxford and Washington BioS Scientific Publishers 1999 185996-421 First Edition Pictorial boards As New 
A few illustrations, pp xvi, 221, pictorial boards, an excellent copy. {Indispensable for all plant biologists, this is a fascinating and thorough examination of those factors which affect the sex determination of plant species, describing all of the main classes of plant with unisexual flowers hermaphrodite, monoecious and dioecious}. [From the library of Sir John Burnett, with his signature on the front endpaper. A distinguished academic career and a lifelong interest in fungi, botany and nature conservation made him the ideal champion for biological recording in the UK. He held that effective nature conservation could be achieved only if good quality information about species and their habitats was accessible to all who needed it - a belief that made him perfectly suited to run the National Biodiversity Network, founded in 2000. He was convinced that academics with high administrative posts must continue with some personal research, in his case on the myxomycetes.]

17 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.]
