About this book

Pleurocarpous Mosses: Systematics and Evolution presents a timely summary of the evolution of pleurocarpous mosses, including recent breakthroughs. This book discusses higher level relationships, constructing the backbone phylogeny of the group and setting up relations within subgroups. It explores the processes involved in the evolution of the pleurocarps and of morphological features. It covers fossil history and proposed dates for evolution of critical nodes. It examines new methods and technologies on traditional views of relationships within a poorly known group of organisms. It also addresses wider evolutionary questions relevant to the origin and maintenance of species diversity.
