Booknews
This edition (previous, 1984; reprints, with corrections, 1986, 1988, 1990) reviews recent progress in molecular techniques which are transforming our understanding of microevolution and the evolutionary history of flowering plants. This progress is addressed in historical context, showing how hypotheses and models developed in the past have been critically tested. Also considered are the insights that molecular biology offers into the processes of evolution in populations of cultivated, wild, and weedy species, the threats of extinction faced by many endangered species, and the wider evolutionary history of the flowering plants as revealed by cladistic methods.
