Volume 141: Stuessy, T., Veronika Mayer and Elvira Hörandl (eds.): Deep Morphology. Toward a Renaissance of Morphology in Plant Systematics. 2003. illus. XI, 326 p. gr8vo. Hardcover. (ISBN 978-3-906166-07-0/ ISSN 0080-0694)

How can we utilize morphological data in a more sophisticated andefficaceous way in plant systematics?This book provides some useful answers to this question. The chaptersare divided into three main sections dealing with Genetics and Development (chapters 2-5), Phylogenetic Analysis (chapters 6-8), andEcology and Adaptation (chapters 9-13), sandwiched between an intro-duction (chapter 1) and final overview (chapter 14).Contents: List of Authors; Preface; Introduction: Chapter 1.
