Product Description


There is a lot to consider in the book for practicing systematists, mostly issues of molecular systematics, ranging from DNA sequence alignment problems to those of the practicality of analysis of the enormous and ever increasing data sets that are generated by genomic approaches to phylogeny reconstruction. (Olivier Rieppel, Biology and Philosophy (2007), 22:141-144)

All in all, this is an interesting conribution to the genre. The production quality of the book is mostly very good. Staunch devotees of parsimony will find this to be an essential reference, while everyone else will find much that is of interest. (Systematic Biology, 56(1): 147-149, 2007)

... a cogent, comprehensive overview ... of parsimony and its role in genomics. (Rob DeSalle, Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol 82, June 2007)

...this is the book to consult if you want to know more about the role that parsimony analysis has to play in phylogenetics today and what it might be used for in the future. (Systematic Biology, 56(1): 147-149, 2007)
