This book is a unique and integrated account of the history of North American vegetation and paleoenvironments over the past 70 million years. It includes discussions of the modern plant communities, causal factors for environmental change, biotic response, and methodologies. The history reveals a North American vegetation that is vast, immensely complex, and dynamic.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I strongly recommend this text to readers having a strong background in the biological and geological sciences. For the specialist, species list are provided for the major fossil floras and a list of technical papers is included after each chapter. For the general reader, terms are defined,
specialized units of measurements are explained, and widely used common names for familiar plants are given as they are encountered in the text." -- Laurent M. Meillier
"Graham has provided us with a very well-written and broadly encompassing tome of the last 100 million years of North American vegetation. Graham proceeds in an orderly fashion by providing us with background information and concepts, for example in present-day climate and vegetation/climate
relations. A significant part of the book occupies itself with discussions of methodologists currently used in the studies of paleobotany/palynology, and these discussions include their limitations as well as their strengths." -- Jack A. Wolfe, American Association of Stratigraphic Palynologists,
Inc., Sept. 2000
