Hallo all

being a botanist, it may seem to be an absurd question to be asked on my part but can anyone tell me the book or literature where i can find all about taxonomy, plant diversification, their evolution, systematics in general. description of families is what is discussed in most of the books on taxonomy after a brief discussion on these topics. what i want is taxonomy and systematics beyond the normal treatment of families. i am attaching a paper on polyploidy and angiosperm diversification for your perusal. i want to do justice to this paper. can any one help. if someone has the matter in soft form, can i have a share ?

Try reading
Plant Taxonomy: The Systematic Evaluation of Comparative Data by Tod
F. Stuessy

some pages of the same are given here:

http://books.google.co.in/books?id=0bYs8F0Mb9gC&printsec=frontcover&dq=plant+systematics,+tod+stuessy&source=bl&ots=5OJnEEvsKE&sig=cEUgEIncsvWbuwmjqnSBaksZrmY&hl=en&ei=ZT0STY3rDcfYrQe25IzwCw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CBkQ6AEwAA#v=onepage&q=plant%20systematics%2C%20tod%20stuessy&f=false

You may also refer to the book written by Soltis himself:

Molecular systematics of plants 2, Volume 2 By Douglas E. Soltis,
Pamela S. Soltis, Jeff J. Doyle.

Hope these will help.

Pankaj

I was reading on Polyploidy just a couple of days ago in a great book
'The Secret Life of Trees: How they live and why they matter' by Colin
Tudge. (Published by Penguin Books).

Thanks for sharing this paper on Polyploidy. I am no botanist but this
paper would indeed deepen my perceptions. A wonderful coincidence
indeed.

Thanks once again,
Sandhya
