About this book

The proper use of systematics as a tool in all parts of biology and ecology is a growing area and the subject of new initiatives. This book includes the most appropriate papers from a recent Linnean Society symposium, the purpose of which was to examine the proper use of systematics in ecology and evolutionary biology.
