Reviews of : Plant Morphology by Arthur Wing Haupt PDF Book
Inside this Book – The system of classification used as a basis for the presentation of the principal plant groups is at once simple and conservative. The older classification, which continues to be the one most widely used, has certain limitations, but these arise mainly from uncertainties regarding the affinities of many groups, particularly the lower ones. As long as these uncertainties remain, there is little justification for abandoning an established system of classification for a newer one. A somewhat simpli- fied classification is adopted because of its greater convenience and because more detailed schemes may be found in advanced works dealing ^vith special plant groups. It is comprehensive enough to embrace, under almost every class, the most important orders; but it generally does not include families.
Inside this book –Plant Morphology PDF Book by Arthur Wing Haupt – This book is designed for use in a two-semester course with adequate laboratory work. It is intended to follow a course in general botany, where the student has gained a knowledge of such material as the many available elementary textbooks present. In particular, the student should understand the cytological relations involved in alternation of generations, including the behavior of the chromosomes in vegetative mitosis, fertilization, and meiosis. Much material properly belonging to the special fields of plant anatomy, cytology, and taxonomy has been omitted from the present work, especially in the treatment of the angio- sperms. Emphasis is placed throughout on the evolution of the plant kingdom as revealed by a comparative study of the morphology of the main groups. At the end of the book a list of supplementary readings has been added. These will serve to introduce the student to the current literature dealing with special groups and topics.
