Biological Systematics

Biological Systematics: Principles and Applications draws equally from examples in botany and zoology to provide a modern account of cladistic principles and techniques. It is a core systematics textbook with a focus on parsimony-based approaches for students and biologists interested in systematics and comparative biology. In this new and thoroughly revised edition, Randall T. Schuh and Andrew V. Z. Brower cover a wide range of topics: the history and philosophy of systematics and nomenclature; the mechanics and methods of analysis and evaluation of results; the practical applications of results and wider relevance within biological classification, biogeography, adaptation and coevolution, biodiversity, and conservation; and new software applications. Updated to reflect the exponential growth in the use of DNA sequence data in systematics, the second edition of Biological Systematics features new data techniques and a notable increase in the number of examples from molecular systematics that will be of interest to students increasingly involved in molecular and genetic work.
Product Details


"This is an excellent book. Written by a practicing systematist with a keen interest in the theoretical development of systematics, it has a blend of theory and empiricism that results in a very authoritative treatment... In total, I thoroughly recommend this book... It demands to be read as much for its readability as its content."-Peter Forey, Paleontological Association Newsletter (reviewing the first edition) "This lovely book is a godsend to those of us who teach systematics... I believe that Biological Systematics is the best textbook currently available for courses focusing on the theory and practice of cladistics."-Timothy M.Crowe, Cladistics (reviewing the first edition)
