About the Edition

This book is a concise and up-to-date view of the theory and practice of present-day plant taxonomy. It emphasizes the dynamic, multi-variate nature of the subject which results from taxonomy being both a basic biological discipline and a synthesis of all biological knowledge. The many subjects which provide taxonomic data are not dealt with for their own sakes, but are covered so far as is necessary for an understanding of the nature of taxonomy. For this reason topics such as hybridization, cytogenetics, numerical taxonomy and evolutionary theory do not occupy separate chapters, as in many books, but are woven into what is considered their rightful places.
