Systematics and Biogeography
Gareth Nelson and Norman Platnick

The Species and Systematics Series includes scholarly books that investigate fundamental and practical aspects of systematics and taxonomy. Comprehensive and authoritative volumes are aimed at students and researchers in systematic biology and in the history and philosophy of biology. The book series examines the role of descriptive taxonomy, its fusion with cyber-infrastructure, its future within biodiversity studies, and its importance as an empirical science. The philosophical consequences of classification, as well as its history, will be among the themes explored. Others include systematic methods, empirical studies of taxonomic groups, and the history of homology and its significance in molecular systematics.
