Antarctic Paleobiology discusses the present prestige of paleobiology, mostly paleobotany and palynology in Antarctica, and the interrelationship of Antarctic floras to these of alternative Gondwana continents. It presents a extensive assurance of the foremost teams of crops at the one hand, whereas at the different looking to review the vegetational historical past and the actual and organic parameters that impression the distribution of floras via time and area. The biologic task is mentioned inside of a framework of the geologic historical past, together with the tectonic and paleogeographic historical past of the area. ultimately, the reader will discover a accomplished bibliography of Gondwana paleobotany and palynology.
