About this book

Overview of the current state of plant systematics, covering topics ranging from morphology to molecules, providing an insight into the biology and evolution of flowering plants as a whole. Covers: plant taxonomy, evolution and classification of flowering plants, pollen, phylogenetic nomenclature, an overview of the plant kingdom from a molecular perspective, and the biological significance of floral odours.


Introduction: Vivi Tackholm memorial papers; Vivi Laurent-Tackholm 1898-1978; Vivi Tackholm, nee Laurent - family perspective; Gunnar Erdtman memorial papers; Gunnar Erdtman - a brief biographical sketch; palynology in perspective; Gunnar Erdtman - continuous defender and innovator of palynology. Systematics today and tomorrow: from morphology to molecules - an exciting time to be a systematist; recent advances in large-scale plant phylogenetic studies; plant systematics at the end of a century; the classification and geography of the angiosperm subclass -monocotyledoneae (liliidae); phylogenetic nomenclature and the new ordinal system for the angiosperms; botanical nomenclature today and tomorrow. Palynology and systematics: current techniques in palynology to systematics; pollen-morphological data I systematics and evolution - past, present and future; a memorable journey from pollen analysis to pollen morphology; orbicules - still a well-hidden secret of the anther; sperm and generative cells in pollen - prospects for systematics. Aspects of Egyptian flora: two linnaean apostles in Egypt - Gasselquist and Forsskal; genetic diversity as a basic components of biodiversity - case studies in Egypt; a taxonomic study of the populations of three common species of the genus orobanche L. (oronbanchaceae) in Egypt; macro- and micromorphology of the seeds and their taxonomic implications; wood charcoal remains in archaeological sites and their contribution to our knowledge of the ancient flora of Egypt. Integration of data from different fields of biology: morphology, distribution and systematic importance of vestures in the Gentianales; plant systematics in the 21st century under social impact - a case study of systematic botany in Japan; fragrance glands (osmophores) in the family oleaceae; floral odours and their biological significance; future of systematic botany - a report from a panel discussion.
