CO2-Forced Climate and Vegetation Instability During Late Paleozoic Deglaciation
Major restructuring of paleotropical flora in western Euramerica occurred in step with climate and pCO2 shifts, illustrating the biotic impact associated with past CO2-forced turnover to a permanent ice-free world.
Paleobotanical and paleoecological constraints on models of peat formation in the Late Carboniferous of Euramerica
EARLY EVOLUTION OF LAND PLANTS: Phylogeny, Physiology, and Ecology of the Primary Terrestrial Radiation
The Siluro-Devonian primary radiation of land biotas is the terrestrial equivalent of the much-debated Cambrian “explosion” of marine faunas, which ended with the formation of evolutionary and ecological frameworks analogous to those of modern ecosystems.

Lower-diversity worlds such as the late Paleozoic, with a rich spectrum of environmental variations, offer insights into relationships between organisms and environments that expand understanding of these phenomena and enlarge their sense of what is possible or probable as the authors look to the future.
Out of the Icehouse into the Greenhouse: A Late Paleozoic Analogue for Modern Global Vegetational Change
A change to global greenhouse conditions following deglaciation occurred during the late Paleozoic. The deep-past data set preserved in the stratigraphic record can serve as a model system to…
Response Of Late Carboniferous And Early Permian Plant Communities To Climate Change
▪ Abstract Late Carboniferous and Early Permian strata record the transition from a cold interval in Earth history, characterized by the repeated periods of glaciation and deglaciation of the south...
Evolution and importance of wetlands in earth history
The fossil record of wetlands documents unique and long-persistent fl oras and faunas with wetland habitats spawning or at least preserving novel evolutionary characteristics and, at other times,…

Abstract Early Permian (late Leonardian Series) plant assemblages from King, Knox, and Stonewall Counties of North-Central Texas are dominated by seed plants, some apparently congeneric with taxa…
Terrestrial Ecosystems Through Time
Terrestrial Ecosystems Through Time: Evolutionary Paleoecology of Terrestrial Plants and Animals
This book is the first survey of the entire ecological history of life on land--from the earliest traces of terrestrial organisms over 400 million years ago to the beginning of human agriculture and establishes a new and ambitious basis for the study of evolutionary paleoecology of land ecosystems.
