Plant Systematics, Third Edition, has made substantial contributions to plant systematics courses at the upper-undergraduate and first year graduate level with the first edition winning The New York Botanical Garden's Henry Allan Gleason Award for outstanding recent publication in plant taxonomy, plant ecology or plant geography. This third edition continues to provide the basis for teaching an introduction to the morphology, evolution and classification of land plants. A foundation of the approach, methods, research goals, evidence and terminology of plant systematics are presented, along with the most recent knowledge of evolutionary relationships of plants and practical information vital to the field.
In this new edition, the author includes greatly expanded treatments of families of flowering plants, as well as tropical trees (all with full-color plates), an updated explanation of maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference algorithms. Chapters on morphology and plant nomenclature also have been enhanced with new material.
- Covers research developments in plant molecular biology
