  1. Palaeogeography and Palaeobiogeography: Biodiversity in Space and Time

    Edited by Paul Upchurch, Alistair J. McGowan, Claire S.C. Slater

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    Biogeography represents one of the most complex and challenging aspects of macroevolutionary research, requiring input from both the earth and life sciences. Palaeogeographic reconstruction is frequently carried out by researchers with backgrounds in geology and palaeontology, who are less likely...

    the past, present, and future of algal systematics

    Edited by Juliet Brodie, Jane Lewis

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    Acting as titans in global control of the biosphere and colonizing virtually all corners of the earth, algae, extremely diverse and numerous oxygenic, photosynthetic organisms, can be major players in and drivers of environmental change. For hundreds of years, since their evolutionary origins by...

  4. Automated Taxon Identification in Systematics

    Theory, Approaches and Applications

    Edited by Norman MacLeod

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    The automated identification of biological objects or groups has been a dream among taxonomists and systematists for centuries. However, progress in designing and implementing practical systems for fully automated taxon identification has been frustratingly slow. Regardless, the dream has never...

    Techniques, Politics, and Applications

    Edited by Gordon B. Curry, Chris J. Humphries

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    Computing and database management has shifted from cottage industry-style methods — the small independent researcher keeping records for a particular project — to state-of-the-art file storage systems, presentation, and distribution over the Internet. New and emerging techniques for recognition,...

  6. Pleurocarpous Mosses

    Systematics and Evolution

    Edited by Angela E. Newton, Raymond S. Tangney

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    The shift from traditional taxonomic methods to data-oriented, analytical cladistic methodologies has led to a better understanding of biological processes and more accurate classifications for a wide range of organisms, including mosses. Pleurocarpous Mosses: Systematics and Evolution explores the...

  7. Reconstructing the Tree of Life

    Taxonomy and Systematics of Species Rich Taxa

    Edited by Trevor R. Hodkinson, John A.N. Parnell

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    To document the world’s diversity of species and reconstruct the tree of life we need to undertake some simple but mountainous tasks. Most importantly, we need to tackle species rich groups. We need to collect, name, and classify them, and then position them on the tree of life. We need to do this...

  8. Biogeography in a Changing World

    Edited by Malte C. Ebach, Raymond S. Tangney

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    Hampered by a confusing plethora of approaches and methods, biogeography is often treated as an adjunct to other areas of study. The first book to fully define this rapidly emerging subdiscipline, Biogeography in a Changing World elucidates the principles of biogeography and paves the way for its...

  9. Neotropical Savannas and Seasonally Dry Forests

    Plant Diversity, Biogeography, and Conservation

    Edited by R. Toby Pennington, James A. Ratter

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    More often than not, when people think of a neotropical forest, what comes to mind is a rain forest, rather than a dry forest. Just as typically, when they imagine a savanna, they visualize the African plains, rather than those dry woodlands and grasslands found in the Neotropics. These same...

    An Evolutionary Synthesis in the Age of Genomics

    Edited by Robert P Hirt, David S. Horner

    Series: Systematics Association Special Volumes

    The recent revolution in molecular biology has spread through every field of biology including systematics and evolution. Researchers can now analyze the genomes of different species relatively quickly, and this is generating a great deal of data and theories about relationships between taxa as...
