Editorial Reviews


"This new edition of a well-known work on plant evolutionary biology reviews both population-level processes and the evolution of species and higher taxa. Evolutionary principles are illustrated with a wide variety of examples, with studies published during different periods and using different techniques combined to give a much broader, more balanced view of the field than most other books, and with emphasis on the historical development of modern concepts... Teachers and researchers will value this book for its broad coverage of plant evolution, its citation of many studies illustrating evolutionary principles, and its citations of review articles covering many branches of evolutionary botany."

Book Description

In an approach neglected by other authors, this book , revealing how a belief in the fixity of species was abandoned in the face of Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection. In this revised and extended third edition, the authors consider the remarkable insights that recent investigations, often using molecular techniques, have given us about wider evolutionary processes in contemporary populations, inculding the factors likely to lead to the extinction of endangered species.
