[ Reading List of Books and Book Chapters ]


This reading list of books and book chapters is intended for persons who want to broaden their general outlook on the origin of flowering plants, holometabolous insects, and related topics in biochemistry, development, entomology, evolutionary ecology, geology, paleobotany, paleoecology, and physiology.

Flowing water is a significant erosive force, which is demonstrable in this image of the five-meter-wide bowl cut in sandstone beds of Santa Paula Creek at Jackson Falls in the Topatopa Mountains of the North American Transverse Ranges. I photographed the left-hand image in 1965 using Kodachrome ASA 25 film while perched at the top of a 20 m-high cliff next to the upper falls of the creek.

A cut and polished cross-section of a permineralized log of Araucarioxylon arizonicum (seed plant incertae cedis) from the Triassic Chinle Formation of western North America is shown to the right. The image of fossilized wood was captured by T. Scott Williams, Petrified Forest National Park Curator and Photographer. The photograph is reproduced here with his written permission. I added the green background to the image palette.

John M. Miller, Ph.D. and Kenton L. Chambers, Ph.D. have published a taxonomic monograph titled, Systematics of Claytonia (Portulacaceae), culminating more than 40 years of research on a biogeographically significant group of flowering plants, which are indigenous to the mountain chains of Asia and North America.

The image to the right consists of several tetraploid plants of Claytonia parviflora subsp. parviflora from the Greenhorn Mountains of western North America.

Interested persons may order a copy of the hardbound Volume 78 of this serial through the American Society of Plant Taxonomists Business Manager. Booksellers, botanists, and buyers may also wish to consult the home page of Systematic Botany Monographs.
