Plant systematics; a phylogenetic approach, 3d ed. (CD-ROM included)
Ed. by Walter S. Judd et al.
For this third edition of a text/CD-ROM package, Judd (University of Florida) updates material to reflect changes in the circumscription of many orders and families to represent monophyletic groups, following the most recent classification of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group. Also new to this edition are color photos illustrating morphological variation in vascular plants. The companion CD-ROM now contains 3,100 images of flowers, fruits, and other parts of plants, plus an expanded illustrated glossary with links to images, and an appendix listing all the families of angiosperms. The text is appropriate for any course devoted to the systematics of angiosperms or vascular plants, and for local flora courses. Apart from introductory botany or biology, no other prerequisites are necessary.
