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.

Contents

Part 1 Molecules and genomes in plant systematics: Chloroplast DNA and the study of plant phylogeny - present status and future prospects, M T Clegg and G Zurawski; Use of chloroplast DNA rearrangements in reconstructing plant phylogeny, S R Downie and J D Palmer; Mitochondrial DNA in plant systematics - applications and limitations, J D Palmer; Ribosomal RNA as a phylogenetic tool in plant systematics, R K Hamby and E A Zimmer; Evolution of the NOR and 5S DNA loci in the Triticeae, R Appels and B Baum.
