Catalogue of the Fossil Plants of the Glossopteris Flora in the Department of Geology, British Museum (Natural History); being a Monograph of the Permo-Carboniferous Flora of India and the Southern Hemisphere

Abstract

IN this catalogue the author makes “an attempt towards a complete summary of what is at present known on the subject of the Glossopteris Flora,” and he may be cordially congratulated on the successful completion of a task both arduous and difficult. Dr. Smith Woodward, the keeper of the department of geology, has very wisely encouraged the production of catalogues, which are in reality monographs of the greatest value to both botanical and geological students. The scattered literature dealing with the Glossopteris flora renders the work of the monographer very heavy, and the nature of much of the material on which he must base his conclusions necessitates considerable self-control and caution.
