Taxonomy, the study of the rules, principles and practice of classifying living organisms, has undergone a revolution in the 20 years since the first edition of this book appeared. The latest edition has been completely rewritten, to account for the advances made in this period. It is split into three sections: part A looks at Microtaxonomy - taxonomy at the species level; part B looks at Macrotaxonomy - the classification of higher taxa; finally, part C explains the practical application of taxonomy, from collection and identification, to documentation and publication, to the rules of zoological nomenclature. An invaluable text.
