"! this volume charts the efforts of several international groups to address the problems faced by contemporary taxonomists. In 10 essays covering techniques such as DNA barcoding, computer-aided identification, digital morphology, and E-typification, the book provides what the back cover describes as 'an unapologetic look at morphology and descriptive taxonomy ... [that] frames one of the most constructive responses to the biodiversity crisis.' This is a bold claim. But perhaps we should expect nothing less from the editor, who, amongst other things, is director of Arizona State University's International Institute for Species Exploration! ." --Vincent S. Smith, Department of Entomology, The Natural History Museum, London, in Systematic Biology, Vol. 57
