With their team of contemporary scholars, the editors present a thorough coverage of fundamental topics necessary for obtaining an up-to-date understanding of the biology of ferns and lycophytes. The book is organized into major topics that build from the individual and its biochemistry and structure, to genetics and populations, to interactions among individuals and the conservation of species, and concludes with perspectives on evolutionary history and classification. Each chapter is organized to review past work, explore current questions, and suggest productive directions for continued discoveries about these fascinating groups of organisms. Written for upper undergraduates, graduates and academic researchers, Biology and Evolution of Ferns and Lycophytes fills a major gap in biological, organism-level, evolutionary literature by providing a review of the biology and evolution of this important group of vascular land plants.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This book will be indispensable for complementing any fern biology or systematics courses still taught at university. It will provide essential background information for those beginning research in any of the areas covered.' Annals of Botany
'... an excellent summary of recent knowledge and advances in research of ferns and lycophytes. This book fills a major gap in the literature of the past decade and provides a modern overview of the biology and evolution of these fascinating plants.' Folia Geobotanica
"The most closely related book is the 1938 Manual of Pteridology edited by Frans Verdoorn, so this is a long-overdue summary of the up-to-date understanding of ferns and lycophytes." L.G. Kavaljian, Choice
"I enthusiastically recommend this readable and authoritative book to scholars interested in the latest research on ferns." Linda Graham, Plant Science Bulletin
