GEOLOGY AND PLANT LIFE:
THE EFFECTS OF LANDFORMS AND ROCK TYPES ON PLANTS


NEW COPY. First softback edition (2002)

By Arthur R. Kruckeberg 

Drawing on case histories from around the world, Arthur Kruckeberg demonstrates the role of landforms and rock types in producing the unique geographical distributions of plants. His examples range throughout the rich tapestry of the earth's surface: the dramatic variations of mountainous topography, the undulating ground and crevices of level limestone karst, and the subtle realm of sand dunes.
 
Kruckeberg explores the fundamental connection between plants and geology, including the historical roots of geobotany and the physical and biological influences of soils.
 
Geology and Plant Life is the result of more than forty years of research into the question of why certain plants grow on certain soils and certain terrain structures, and what happens when this relationship is disrupted by human agents.
