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.

Chemical Plant Taxonomy focuses on the classification of plants based on their chemical composition. Composed of contributions of authors, the text first considers the methods of plant taxonomy. Folk taxonomy; Linnaean and post-Linnaean taxonomy; Darwin and ""Evolutionary Taxonomy""; and the development of taxonomic practice are considered. The book continues with discussions on the theoretical and practical aspects of the ""species"" concepts and an outline of the history of chemical taxonomy. The selection also looks at the qualities of chemotaxonomy, the usefulness of chemistry in plant taxonomy, biosynthetic pathways, and the factors affecting the production of secondary plant products. The text discusses the distribution of alkanes. The isolation and characterization of alkanes; taxonomic applications of alkanes; biogenesis of alkanes; and fossil alkanes are discussed. The selection highlights the chemical taxonomy of acetylenic compounds, the distribution of fatty acids in plant lipids, distribution of aliphatic polyols, cyclitols, plant glycosides, and alkaloids. The text is a good source of information for readers wanting to study the taxonomy of chemical plants.

Plant Systematics contains the essential paradigms, concepts, and terms required for a basic understanding of plant systematics at the graduate or undergraduate level. Plant systematics is an area central to numerous other biological disciplines, and a large subset of plant scientists are required to take a course in plant systematics. Almost all ecologists, horticulturalists, plant developmental biologists, and plant pathologists are interested in plant systematics because it is central to their studies of the plants that form such a large part of every ecosystem and experimental system.

The science that finds, identifies, classifies, describes and names plants is called plant taxonomy. It is closely associated with plant systematics. Plant taxonomy facilitates an organized system for the cataloging and naming of specimens. Identification, classification and description are the main goals of plant taxonomy. Plant identification is a process of identifying an unknown plant by comparing it with previously collected specimens or through an identification manual. Plant classification is the practice of placing known plants into categories or groups to show some relationship. Giving a formal description of a newly discovered species usually in the form of a scientific paper using ICN guidelines is called plant description. This book provides significant information about this discipline to help develop a good understanding of plant taxonomy and related fields. Coherent flow of topics, student-friendly language and extensive use of examples make it an invaluable source of knowledge. This book will prove to be immensely beneficial to students and researchers in this field of study.

Plant Taxonomy Is The Science That Deals With The Identification, Nomenclature And Classification Of Plants. The Term Plant Systematics Is Often Used Synonymously With Plant Taxonomy But Sometimes Has The Connotation Of Mainly Using Recently Developed Techniques Such As Chromosomal Studies, Electron Microscopy Or Molecular Biology To Answer Questions About Plant Relationships. We Use The Plant Taxonomy Developed By Linneaus Who Improved On The Systems Of His Predecessors. Plant Taxonomy Remains An Important And Relevant Aspect Of Modern Botany. A Disproportionate Emphasis On The Practice Of Plant Taxonomy Has To Some Extent Caused The Science To Be Seen Solely As The Activity Of Plant Identification. This Book Attempts To Redress The Balance By Providing An Introduction To The Taxonomic Theory Upon Which The Identification Procedure Is Based. The Contents Include: ̈ Problem Of Plant Classification ̈ Classification And Nomenclature Of Plants ̈ Keys And Descriptions In Plants ̈ Adaptations And Life-Forms For Plants ̈ Types And Areas Of Natural Distributions In Plants ̈ Evolutionary Development In Plants ̈ Field Observations Of Plants ̈ Habitats, Successions And Climaxes For Plants ̈ The Geographical Scale Of Speciation ̈ Herbarium As A Record Of Plants ̈ Materials And Methods Of Research For The Use Of Herbarium ̈ Popular And Scientific Names In Plants ̈ Bibliography And Index This Book Will Be Useful To Students And Teachers Of Botany And Plant Science.

Vistas in Botany, Volume 4: Recent Researchers in Plant Taxonomy covers some of the more important general aspects of plant taxonomy. This volume is composed of seven chapters that link the practice and theory of taxonomy to plant geography, ecology, pollen anatomy, embryology, genetics, and cytology. The opening chapter outlines the views on plant taxonomy classification, the relevance of these views to biological classification, and some of the problems of classification in the non-taxonomic fields of ecology, soil science, and librarianship. The succeeding chapter presents the classification of the spores in higher plants, the cormophytes. This topic is followed by discussions on the embryological characters of taxonomic significance and the interrelations of plant taxonomy, phytogeography, and plant ecology. The final chapters consider the taxonomic preparation of flora and plant fossils. This book will prove useful to taxonomists, botanists, ecologists, and scientists and researchers in the allied fields of botany.
