Syllabus of Plant Families (13th ed.)


This is a revised and completely restructured 13th edition of Engler's 2 volume Syllabus der Pflanzenfamilien, to be published in 5 volumes in English for the first time. Volume 3 (the first published of 5 volumes scheduled) provides a thorough treatment of the world - wide morphological and molecular diversity of a part of 'lower' plants ((Marchantiophyta, Bryophyta, Anthoceratophyta, Tracheophyta Polysporangiomorpha, Protracheophytes, Rhyniophytina, Lycophytina, 'Trimerophytina', Moniliformopses ('Pteridophyta'), Radiotopses (Progymnospermopsida)). - The advent of DNA sequencing and advances in phylogenetic analysis has raised new interest in the relationships of liverworts, mosses, hornworts, ferns, and fern allies as extant representatives of early land plant evolution. Following the tradition of Adolf Engler with the morphological - anatomical data and incorporating latest results from molecular phylogenetics and phylogenomics, an up to date overview of families and genera has been created that will serve as reference for a long time. - The next volume to come is volume 1 Algae & Fungi in 2010.
