Rezensionen
Praise for the first edition: "This publication, many years in the making, represents a masterly treatment of vascular plant groups and the principles of plant systematics as well as incorporating the latest concepts in phylogenetics and methodologies. It is erudite and most importantly - user friendly, especially students. This text will serve as the standard for many years to come." - Botanical Society of America
"The botanical community has been waiting for a textbook like this for a long time – the wait is finally over!" - Kenneth M. Cameron, The New York Botanical Garden, U.S.A.

"This book...will inspire readers to consider joining the ranks of a new generation of plant systematists. - Bruce G. Baldwin, University of California, Berkeley, U.S.A.

"Mike Simpson has authored a comprehensive, up-to-date, user-friendly, and profusely illustrated textbook that will facilitate the teaching of plant systematics...." - Wayne J. Elisens, University of Oklahoma, Norman, U.S.A.
