While biomes are the major organizing feature of terrestrial ecosystems, dependent on the organisms, ecosystems and climate of the planet, the details of these environments have changed over the history of our planet and will continue to do so. To understand fully the impacts of shifting biomes and anthropogenic climate change, we need to also understand the assembly of past environments. This course focuses on the plant primary producers as it surveys important biological innovations, examples of past ecosystems from the fossil record, the relevance of climate to terrestrial environments, and the changing world of today and tomorrow.
