Plant taxonomy : the systematic evaluation of comparative data by Tod F Stuessy( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of plant taxonomy has transformed rapidly over the past fifteen years, especially with regard to improvements in cladistic analysis and the use of new molecular data. The second edition of this popular resource reflects these far-reaching and dramatic developments with more than 3,000 new references and many new figures. Synthesizing current research and trends, Plant Taxonomy now provides the most up-to-date overview in relation to monographic, biodiversity, and evolutionary studies, and continues to be an essential resource for students and scholars. This text is divided into two parts: Part 1 explains the principles of taxonomy, including the importance of systematics, characters, concepts of categories, and different approaches to biological classification. Part 2 outlines the different types of data used in plant taxonomic studies with suggestions on their efficacy and modes of presentation and evaluation. This section also lists the equipment and financial resources required for gathering each type of data. References throughout the book illuminate the historical development of taxonomic terminology and philosophy while citations offer further study. Plant Taxonomy is also a personal story of what it means to be a practicing taxonomist and to view these activities within a meaningful conceptual framework. Tod F. Stuessy recalls the progression of his own work and shares his belief that the most creative taxonomy is done by those who have a strong conceptual grasp of their own research
Cladistics : perspectives on the reconstruction of evolutionary history : papers presented at a Workshop on the Theory and Application of Cladistic Methodology, March 22-28, 1981, University of California, Berkeley by Workshop on the Theory and Application of Cladistic Methodology( Book )

7 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolution and speciation of island plants( Book )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oceanic island archipelagos provide many clues about evolutionary patterns and processes, and may rightly be considered as among the best places on earth to seek an understanding of the origin and elaboration of biological diversity. This volume brings together contributions covering a range of important issues in contemporary oceanic island plant biology, focusing on patterns and processes in various island groups (with emphasis on the Bonin, Hawaiian and Juan Fernandez Islands) to provide a stimulating view of the current state of research and a possible agenda for future investigations. Topics addressed include chromosomal variation, macromolecular divergence, island biogeography theory, isolating mechanisms, modes of speciation and evolution of secondary plant products. The result is a volume that reveals the special opportunities offered by oceanic archipelagos for investigating evolutionary phenomena in vascular plants
Case studies in plant taxonomy : exercises in applied pattern recognition by Tod F Stuessy( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sampling the green world : innovative concepts of collection, preservation, and storage of plant diversity( Book )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Botanists now realize that methods of documentation have been haphazard at best. Even today, materials gathered in the field are seldom scientifically handled, and recently acquired specimens often lack the most elemental details of location, ecology, and plant features. A clear program to chart and conserve the estimated 250-400,000 species of flowering plants and ferns is desperately needed
Cladistic theory and methodology( Book )

8 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deep morphology : toward a renaissance of morphology in plant systematics( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flavonoids of the sunflower family (Asteraceae) by Bruce A Bohm( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flavonoids are secondary plant products that are helpful in determining relationships among plant groups. This work presents comprehensively the occurrence, patterns of variation, and systematic and evolutionary importance of flavonoids in the sunflower family (Asteraceae). By gathering together the more than 2500 reports of flavonoids in Asteraceae and discussing the patterns in context of phylogenetic studies, this book provides an interpretative synthesis never before accomplished for any large family of angiosperms."--Jacket
