About this book

The application of molecular techniques is rapidly transforming the study of plant systematics. The precision they offer enables researchers to classify plants that have not been subject to rigorous classification before and thus allows them to obtain a clearer picture of evolutionary relationships. Plant Molecular Systematics is arranged both conceptually and phylogenetically to accommodate the interests not only of general systematists, but also those of people interested in a particular plant family. The first part discusses molecular sequencing; the second reviews restriction site analysis and the sequencing of mitochondrial DNA. A third section details the analysis of ribosomal DNA and chloroplast DNA. The following section introduces model studies involving well-studied families such as the Onagraceae, Compositae and Leguminosae. The book concludes with a section addressing theoretical topics such as data analysis and the question of morphological vs. molecular data.

Reviews

This is clearly a worthy volume, with a wealth of information and ideas on the application of molecular data to taxonomy. - Plant Varieties and Seeds; ...an excellent introduction to the field right now - Acta Botanica Useful for everybody interested in Plant Systematics and in the use and problems of modern techniques more recently applied. Highly recommended to people interested in this field. - Journal of Plant Physiology; This is clearly a worthy volume, with a wealth of information and ideas on the application of molecular data to taxonomy. - Plant Varieties and Seeds; ...an excellent introduction to the field right now - Acta Botanica Useful for everybody interested in Plant Systematics and in the use and problems of modern techniques more recently applied.
