About this book

Major new Sinauer textbook, originally announced as a Smithsonian Institution Press title (Smithsonian IP has now ceased publishing).

From the publisher's announcement:

This book provides a comprehensive summary of current concepts of angiosperm phylogeny. The four authors have teamed up to shed light on the dramatic changes in the understanding of angiosperms. Their coverage of this subject illustrates several themes and points out current inadequacies as well as highlighting areas where further study is needed. Suitable for postgraduate level and beyond, this fascinating book provides an in-depth examination of one of nature's most alluring class of plants.
