About this book

Uses empirical data to address conceptual issues in the fields of plant systematics and evolution. Fundamental to the book is the belief that the planet's botanical diversity needs to be understood in terms not only of patterns but also of underlying processes. Thus, the volume contains chapters that discuss the integration of population genetics and phylogenetics, molecules and morphology, gene expression and gene relationships, and systematics and molecular evolution.
