Flowering Plants: Evolution and Classification of Higher by Professor V. H. Heywood (auth.), Prof. Dr. Klaus Kubitzki

By Professor V. H. Heywood (auth.), Prof. Dr. Klaus Kubitzki (eds.)

The unique recommendation to prepare a symposium in regards to the classi­ fication and evolution of the Flowering crops was once made at, the overseas Botanical Congress at Leningrad in 1975, and the assumption used to be so good accredited by means of numerous colleagues that plans for this kind of symposium speedy took form. An organizing committee along with Professor H. MERXMULLER, Miinchen, Professor V. H. HEYWOOD, interpreting, and Professor ok. KUBITZKI, Hamburg, was once arrange. The convention happened on 7-12 September 197tl within the Institut fiir Allgemeine Botanik of the college of Hamburg less than the auspices of the overseas organization for Plant Taxonomy and was once at­ tended through eighty individuals from 14 international locations. there were numerous conferences in recent times that have handled the beginning and evolution of the Flowering crops in order that it'd be wondered even if another symposium facing roughly an identical topic have been rather "justified. because the reader will see from the contents of the publication, this symposium differed from related ones held lately in respects: 1. Emphasis was once given to methodological points of the type of upper taxa, and a couple of. a lot classificatory and evolutionary facts on the subject of the better taxa of Flowering vegetation was once presented.
