BRYONET: new publication announcement


we are pleased to announce the publication the first installment of
the 13th edition of Engler's Syllabus of Plant Families, Part3:
Bryophyte and seedless Vascular Plants has just edited by Wolfgang

I would be very grateful if you would post the publication
announcement attached below to BRYONET-L, as this publication is
of direct relevance to bryologists.

You are welcome to attach the corresponding flyer
to your posting, but at 2.2Mb size it is not really small and I don't know
what the common practice is on BRYONET-L regarding attachments. The
announcement text therefore contains a link to the flyer.

Engler's Syllabus was first published in 1887 and this 13th edition is the
first english language edition.

If you do have any questions about my request, please don't hesitate
to let me know.

We appreciate your support in this matter.

Sincerely yours,

-walt obermiller


subject: Bryophytes and seedless Vascular Plants (Engler's Syllabus Pt. 3) published

Gebr. Borntraeger Publishers are pleased to announce the publication
of the first installment of the 13th edition of Engler's Syllabus of
Plant Families, covering Bryophytes and seedless Vascular Plants.

Part3: Bryophytes and seedless Vascular Plants
(Syllabus of Plant Families, Part 3)
Edited by Wolfgang Frey.
13th ed., 2009. X, 419 p., 72 figs., 1 tab, hardcover,
ISBN 978-3-443-01063-8, EUR 89

The volume provides a state-of-the art, current and thorough treatment
of the world-wide morphological and molecular diversity of a part of
“lower� plants [Marchantiophyta, Bryophyta, Anthocerotophyta,
Polysporangiomorpha, Protracheophytes, Rhyniophytina, Lycophytina,
“Trimerophytina�, Moniliformopses (Cladoxylopsida, Psilotopsida,
Equisetopsida, Marattiopsida, Polypodiopsida)], and Radiatopses
(Progymnospermopsida). The advent of DNA sequencing and advances in
phylogenetic analysis has raised new interest in the relationships of
liverworts, mosses, hornworts, ferns, and fern allies as extant
representatives of early land plant evolution. Following the tradition
of Engler with the morphological-anatomical data and incorporating
latest results from molecular phylogenetics and phylogenomics, an
up-to-date overview of families and genera has been created that will
serve as reference for a long time.

"Bryophytes and seedless Vascular Plants" should be on the bookshelf
of any researcher concerned with bryophyte systematics.

The complete Engler Syllabus book series will have five parts.
The forthcoming volume covers the blue-green algae, myxomycetes and
