Plant Variation and Evolution

by David Briggs and Stuart Max Walters
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1997. 534 pages.

First published in 1969 and now in its third edition, Briggs and Walters's classic text is fully up-to-date with coverage of the implications of molecular biology for plant variation and evolution. The reviewer for the Journal of Plant Physiology describes Plant Variation and Evolution as "suitable for university students in Environmental Sciences, Agricultural Sciences, Botany and Plant Biology. It is particularly a useful book for updates. The book is highly recommended for the professional practitioner in the field as a background, for plant physiologists and people in related fields it provides a thorough review of the field as it now stands."
