The plant fossil record indicates that the genus Metasequoia was widely distributed throughout the Northern Hemisphere from the early Late Cretaceous to the Plio-Pleistocene. Today the genus has shrunk to one species with approximately 5,000 mature individuals in southeastern China's Xiahoe Valley. This book distills the current understanding of the biology, ecology and physiology of fossil and living Metasequoia, current research directions and problems that remain unresolved.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Aus den Rezensionen:

"... Alles in allem liefert das vorliegende Werk eine enorme Fulle von Fakten und darauf basierender, fundierter Interpretationen zu den verschiedensten rezent- und palaobotanischen Aspekten die die Gattung Metasequoia betreffen. Das Werk kann man daher als unverzichtbares ... Standardwerk fur jeden ansehen, der sich ... mit diesem Taxon befasst. Daruber hinaus zeigt dieses Buch auch modellhaft, wie man die oekologische Interpretation ausgewahlter fossiler Taxa durch interdisziplinare Forschungen optimieren kann ... Gleichermassen detaillierte und fundierte Bearbeitungen ... helfen, unser Verstandnis ... deutlich zu verbessern."

(D. UHL, in: Zentralblatt fur Geologie und Palaontologie Teil II, 2006, Issue 3-4, S. 611 f.)
