Excerpt from The Journal of Botany, Vol. 7: British and Foreign; With Plates and Woodcuts
The study of the vegetable fossils of the palaeozoic rocks presents a peculiar interest on account of their singular forms, which generally separate them in a very remarkable manner from... the plants now living on the earth.
With the exception of the Ferns, which have a similar form through out all time, the other plants of the coal period differ so greatly from those of the later periods, as well as those now living, that the most careful examination has failed to refer them to families of recent plants.
