About this book

Discusses our increasing understanding of gene function and expression, and modern phylogenies which integrate morphological and molecular data, highlighting specific key transitions in plant evolution most worthy of study. It also explores new knowledge of the physical expression of plant development from disciplines such as anatomy and palaeobotany.

Media reviews
'Collectively, the chapters in this symposium volume from the Systematics Association present a vibrant view of this growing field. Developmental Genetics and Plant Evolution brings together a variety of approaches and systems where we are beginning to glean some of the answers.'Vivian F. Irish, Science, vol. 298, December 2002 'A book of this sort should help to keep the dialogue going between developmentalists and evolutionists. I think all players in this game can learn from the diverse and interesting perspective and approaches presented.' R. Geeta, American Journal of Botany, 2003
