Molecular Systematics and Plant Evolution discusses the diversity and evolution of plants, taking a molecular approach. It looks at population genetics, phylogeny (history of evolution) and developmental genetics, to provide a framework from which to understand evolutionary patterns and relationships amongst plants. The international (Europe and USA) panel of contributors is composed of respected systematists and evolutionary biologists, who have brought together a wide range of topics from the forefront of research while keeping the text accessible to students. It has been written for senior undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in the fields of botany, systematics, population/conservation genetics, phylogenetics and evolutionary biology.
