The long-awaited revision of the industry standard onphylogenetics

Since the publication of the first edition of this landmarkvolume more than twenty-five years ago, phylogenetic systematicshas taken its place as the dominant paradigm of systematic biology.It has profoundly influenced the way scientists study evolution,and has seen many theoretical and technical advances as the fieldhas continued to grow. It goes almost without saying that the nexttwenty-five years of phylogenetic research will prove asfascinating as the first, with many exciting developments yet tocome.

This new edition of Phylogenetics captures the veryessence of this rapidly evolving discipline. Written for thepracticing systematist and phylogeneticist, it addresses both thephilosophical and technical issues of the field, as well as surveysgeneral practices in taxonomy. Major sections of the book deal withthe nature of species and higher taxa, homology and characters,trees and tree graphs, and biogeography—the purpose being todevelop biologically relevant species, character, tree, andbiogeographic concepts that can be applied fruitfully tophylogenetics.

The book then turns its focus to phylogenetic trees, includingan in-depth guide to tree-building algorithms. Additional coverageincludes:

  • Parsimony and parsimony analysis

  • Parametric phylogenetics including maximum likelihood andBayesian approaches

  • Phylogenetic classification

  • Critiques of evolutionary taxonomy, phenetics, and transformedcladistics

  • Specimen selection, field collecting, and curating

  • Systematic publication and the rules of nomenclature

Providing a thorough synthesis of the field, this importantupdate to Phylogenetics is essential for students andresearchers in the areas of evolutionary biology, molecularevolution, genetics and evolutionary genetics, paleontology,physical anthropology, and zoology.

From the Publisher:

Presents a clear, simple and comprehensive overview of the phylogenetic approach to systematics, which has two major goals: reconstructing the evolutionary relationships among organisms and integrating the results into general reference classifications. Shows how the results of systematic research can be applied to studying the pattern and processes of evolution.
