Editorial Reviews

Review

“The volume is impressively broad in its coverage of modern systematics, including topics such as nomenclature, curatorial practices, and publication, in addition to the basic principles and methods of phylogenetic inference.”  (The Quarterly Review of Biology, 1 March 2014)

 

From the Publisher

Presents a clear, simple and comprehensive overview of the phylogenetic approach to systematics, which has two major goals: reconstructing the evolutionary relationships among organisms and integrating the results into general reference classifications. Shows how the results of systematic research can be applied to studying the pattern and processes of evolution. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

You'll need to do a lot of hard work to get the most out of this book (I know, I'm a beginner) but it is after 30 or so pages educating me in a manner I understand. Don't buy this book unless you're serious about studying. So far, the author has educated me on the very foundation of monophyly and how that is the actual map of nature, and how other grams (non-monophyletic) are just our misunderstandings. Caveat: I have a background in philosophy. This book teaches you how to think, and releases you from all previous nomenclature failings.

Format: Hardcover
Wiley has done it again with this new book but this time he brings into the fold an equally talented systematist, Lieberman. This book carries the grand tradition as Wiley's first edition to Phylogenetic Systematics but provides a thorough update of many topics for practicing systematists and students potentially interested in the discipline. Some may argue that the additional materials do not provide enough depth; this can be argued but the depth to any of the topics can be found in an abundant supply of primary literature. This book is intended as a college text (undergraduate and graduate) and as a reference and critical manual on understanding and practicing systematics in a correct manner.

This book, like the first edition, out shines all other texts on systematics. Why? First, it is intelligible and does not read like a poorly written manual translated from a different language and mixed with a great deal of hyperbole. Second, this book, like the first edition, provides essential theoretical, philosophical and metaphysical aspects to science, especially topics in systematics, that will be beneficial to understanding any of the topics and quickly advancing one's career. All essential topics are covered and if one reads this book and approaches it with an open mind, and not one immediately and unwaveringly biased from being part of a different "camp" of systematists, you will be amazed as to how this will change your life in academics, as well as many other areas of science. Scientists need to be individuals and decide on things like this on their own and on the merits of the philosophical perspective advocated.
