About the Book

Taxonomy is one of the oldest biological disciplines. The general principles and aims of taxonomy are explained in a comprehensive manner in this book. The book gives a critical account of the important systems of classification and salient features of the system of taxonomy of angiosperms. The important rules of plant nomenclature and various codes of nomenclature are given in detail. The use of computer in taxonomy has also been explained which is gaining prominence.

Neat labeled diagrams, tables, charts and illustrations, tabular classifications are included which will help students in better understanding of the subject. Topics are written in point form so that students can grasp and understand all topics. Taxonomy should be well understood by the students which will help them in their future endeavors.

Exercise questions and Past University questions are included for each chapter for the benefit of students.
