Antarctic Paleobiology discusses the present prestige of paleobiology, largely paleobotany and palynology in Antarctica, and the interrelationship of Antarctic floras to these of alternative Gondwana continents. It offers a extensive insurance of the most important teams of vegetation at the one hand, whereas at the different looking to review the vegetational heritage and the actual and organic parameters that effect the distribution of floras via time and area. The biologic job is mentioned inside a framework of the geologic background, together with the tectonic and paleogeographic background of the zone. eventually, the reader will discover a entire bibliography of Gondwana paleobotany and palynology.

He attributed the uneven growth pattern to reaction wood due to gravitational stimulus, but also admitted that it might have been caused by mutual shading, implying a partially closed canopy forest.
