Biological Systematics: Principles and Applications draws equally from examples in botany and zoology to provide a modern account of cladistic principles and techniques. It is a core systematics textbook with a focus on parsimony-based approaches for students and biologists interested in systematics and comparative biology. Randall T. Schuh and Andrew V. Z. Brower cover:

-the history and philosophy of systematics and nomenclature;
-the mechanics and methods of analysis and evaluation of results;
-the practical applications of results and wider relevance within biological classification, biogeography, adaptation and coevolution, biodiversity, and conservation; and
-software applications.

This new and thoroughly revised edition reflects the exponential growth in the use of DNA sequence data in systematics. New data techniques and a notable increase in the number of examples from molecular systematics will be of interest to students increasingly involved in molecular and genetic work.

Review:

"This is an excellent book. Written by a practicing systematist with a keen interest in the theoretical development of systematics, it has a blend of theory and empiricism that results in a very authoritative treatment... In total, I thoroughly recommend this book... It demands to be read as much for its readability as its content."

(Peter Forey Paleontological Association Newsletter)

"This lovely book is a godsend to those of us who teach systematics.... I believe that Biological Systematics is the best textbook currently available for courses focusing on the theory and practice of cladistics."

(Timothy M.Crowe Cladistics)
