angiosperm evolution Ancestral xerophobia: a hypothesis on the whole plant ecophysiology of early angiosperms

Feild TS, Chatelet DS, Brodribb TJ. 2009. Ancestral xerophobia: a hypothesis on the whole plant ecophysiology of early angiosperms. Geobiology 7(2): 237-264.

Today, angiosperms are fundamental players in the diversity and biogeochemical functioning of the planet. Yet despite the omnipresence of angiosperms in today’s ecosystems, the basic evolutionary understanding of how the earliest angiosperms functioned remains unknown. Here we synthesize…
