9780878934072: Plant Systematics: A Phylogenetic Approach, Third Edition

A comprehensive introduction to vascular plant phylogeny, the Third Edition of Plant Systematics reflects changes in the circumscription of many orders and families to represent monophyletic groups, following the most recent classification of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. The taxonomic evidence described includes data from morphology, anatomy, embryology, chromosomes, palynology, secondary plant compounds, proteins, and DNA. Molecular taxonomic methods are fully presented, as are the results of many recent studies, both molecular and morphological. A chapter on the history of plant classification puts current systematic methods into historical context. Issues relating to variation in plant populations and species, including speciation and species concepts, polyploidy, hybridization, breeding systems, and introgression are carefully considered. Appendices cover botanical nomenclature as well as field and herbarium methodology. The text is copiously illustrated, using in large part the informative analytical drawings developed as part of the Generic Flora of the Southeastern United States project.

Review:

" ... There is much to laud in this work." --Mark Fishbein, The Quarterly Review of Biology

I loved this textbook as it holds everything one needs to know about plants: families, floral formulas, distribution and ecology, genera and species, economic plants and products, references of articles and books, figures, phylogenetic trees and morphological character states, and a large discussion on DNA and problematic phylogenetic positions of groups. In addition, keys are provided along with pictures, tables of diagnostic features of some subfamilies, a nice glossary, and a DVD. ... I recommend this textbook for any classes that are botany-related, for any research projects that are botany-related, and any naturalist groups that are botany-related. Plants are wonderful: let people know more about them. --Virginie H. Raquet, Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas
