Plant taxonomy: methods and principles. 2017. 260 p. gr8vo. Hardcover.
Although one of the earliest of biological disciplines, plant taxonomy remains an important and relevant aspect of modern botany. A disproportionate emphasis on the practice of plant taxonomy has to some extent caused the science to be seen solely as the activity of plant identification. This book attempts to redress the balance by providing an introduction to the taxonomic theory upon which the identification procedure is based. The field of plant taxonomy has transformed rapidly over the past fifteen years, especially with regard to improvements in cladistic analysis and the use of new molecular data. This popular resource reflects these far- reaching and dramatic developments with new references. Synthesizing current research and trends, Plant Taxonomy provides the most up-to-date overview in relation to monographic, biodiversit and evolutionary studies, and continues to be an essential resource for students and scholars..
