BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMATICS: Principles and Applications
by Randall T. Schuh & Andrew V. Z. Brower
2009, 311 pages, cladistics diagrams. This book 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. It is especially useful for those who wish to construct a data matrix and generate and evaluate a tree of phylogenetic relationships
The book includes:
The thoroughly revised edition reflects the exponential growth in the use of DNA sequence data in systematics. New data techniques and a notable increase in the number of examples from molecular systematics will be of interest to taxonomists and students increasingly involved in molecular and genetic work. Hardcover; 6-1/4 x 9-1/2″.
