Using case studies taken from scientific literature available in most colleges and universities, Stuessy guides beginners through various tasks such as the recognition of similarities and differences in sets of comparative data and their interpretation and meaning with reference to the various ranks in the Linnaean hierarchy. Building on his monumental book Plant Taxonomy-that synthesized the extensive recent literature on systematic biology with respect to plant taxonomy and that included the most comprehensive bibliograpy of systematic botany in the last twenty-five years-Stuessy again helps students to recognize the importance and relevance of systematic botany to biology and to modern society in this new work. Case Studies in Plant Taxonomy is essential for the development of intuitive pattern recognition skills, a necessary step in formulating intial hypothese of relationships crucial to modern plant taxonomy."@en ;
