About this book

The application of molecular techniques is rapidly transforming the study of plant systematics. This book is arranged both conceptually and phylogenetically to accommodate the interests not only of general systematisists, but also those of people interested in a particular family.
Now complemented by Molecular Systematics of Plants II: DNA Sequencing.

This is clearly a worthy volume, with a wealth of information and ideas on the application of molecular data to taxonomy. - Plant Varieties and Seeds; ...an excellent introduction to the field right now - Acta Botanica Useful for everybody interested in Plant Systematics and in the use and problems of modern techniques more recently applied. Highly recommended to people interested in this field. - Journal of Plant Physiology; This is clearly a worthy volume, with a wealth of information and ideas on the application of molecular data to taxonomy. - Plant Varieties and Seeds; ...an excellent introduction to the field right now - Acta Botanica Useful for everybody interested in Plant Systematics and in the use and problems of modern techniques more recently applied.
