Cambridge Core - Plant Sciences - Plant Variation and Evolution - by David BriggsCited by: 5. 'This is a marvellously instructive book which provides a richness of examples on plant evolution and variation. Brought up to date and giving copious insights to the latest molecular biological and analytical techniques, this edition is par excellence the textbook in the field.'Cited by: Natural populations of plants show intricate patterns of variation.

European botanists of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries used this variation to classify different 'kinds' into a hierarchy of family, genus, and species.

Although useful, these classifications were based on a belief in the fixity of species and the static patterns of variation.

Some recognition of these different ‘kinds’ of organisms is a feature of all primitive societies, for the very good reason that humans had to know, and to distinguish, the edible from the poisonous plants, or the harmless from the dangerous animal.

The evolution of plants has resulted in a wide range of complexity, from the earliest algal mats, through multicellular marine and freshwater green algae, terrestrial bryophytes, lycopods and ferns, to the complex gymnosperms and angiosperms of today.

While many of the earliest groups continue to thrive, as exemplified by red and green algae in marine environments, more recently derived groups.

It reflects the increasing cooperation between strongly genomics-influenced researchers, with their strong grasp of technology, and evolutionary morphogenetists and sys5/5(1).This book integrates a diverse and scattered literature to produce a synthetic account of plant evolutionary ecology.

The central theme is differentiation, both among and within species, in the contemporary flora of the Mediterranean basin. This theme is developed by linking population processes to species evolution, and by examining the variation and evolution of ecological function in the.
