Third Edition. — Science Publishers, 2010. — 702 pp. ISBN 978-1-57808-668-9.The focus of the present edition has been to further consolidate the information on the principles of plant systematic, include detailed discussion on all major systems of classification, and significantly, also include discussion on the selected families of vascular plants, without sacrificing the discussion on basic principles. The families included for discussion are largely those which have wide representation, as also those that are less known but significant in evaluating the phylogeny of angiosperms. The discussion of the families also has a considerable focus on their phylogenetic relationships, as evidenced by recent cladistic studies, with liberal citation of molecular data. Several additional families have been included for detailed discussion in the present volume. Contents: Plants, Taxonomy and Systematics. Plants and Kingdoms of Life. Taxonomy and Systematics.
