Product description

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. Molecular taxonomic methods are fully presented, as are the results of many recent studies, both molecular and morphological.
