Paleobotanists use these fossils to help build a picture of prehistoric environments, the feeding resources of extinct animals and the evolutionary pasts of modern plants. Palaeobotany is a diverse field in its own right, with a rich history and many gripping stories of how life evolved on earth, and among many other things it gives us crucial insight into the climate patterns of the past and their development. Mineral nutrition, photosynthesis. The study of plants in the fossil record, in order to understand both the evolution of plant life and the ecology of ancient eras, is known as paleobotany. Paleobotany includes the study of terrestrial plant fossils biology with the methods and findings of paleontology. Botany thus covers a huge range of plant species, from agricultural crops to delicate flowers to microscopic algae, Paleobotany involves the scientific recovery and study of plant fossil remains. Typical paleobiological research attempts to answer biological questions using geological objects such as fossils found in the field. Physiology: Study of functions and important processes of plants. Paleobotany is the branch of paleontology dealing with the recovery and identification of plant remains from geological contexts, and their place in the reconstruction of past environments and the history of life. Botany is the area of biology concerned with the scientific study of all forms of plant life. Paleobotany: Study of biology and evolution of fossil plants. It was the start of the age of mammals, and Africa was largely an For a continent so important for its role in the evolution of mammals, the scarcity of plant fossil data stands in sharp contrast. Taxonomy: Study of identifying, classifying and naming plants. Fossil pollen from Central and West Africa provide no definitive evidence for communities of rainforest trees at the beginning of the Cenozoic, says Jacobs, an expert in the paleobotany of Africa soon after dinosaurs had gone extinct.
