This review is from: The Emerald Planet: How plants changed Earth's history (Paperback)
Any book about earth history has to be taken with an open mind. This book is a worthy read because it takes a refreshing view of the controlling influence that plants have had over time. I was attracted to the book by an article many years ago in a geological magazine which looked at the role of plants in the Devonian period and their potential influence on extinctions at the end of that period and the changes that plants brought about in the earth's atmosphere and biosphere.
