Looking for somewhere to publish systematics?
In partnership with our new publisher, Cambridge University Press, The Systematics Association offers great opportunities for authors and editors seeking to publish their work. If you have an idea for a themed multiauthor volume (not necessarily based on a symposium) or a textbook, and would like this to be produced at high quality and promoted by both the Association and CUP, then please contact the Editor-in-Chief, David Gower ( ).
The first of the Systematics Association's publications The New Systematics (1940) was a classic work edited by its then-president Sir Julian Huxley. Since then, more than 70 volumes have been published, often in rapidly expanding areas of science where a modern synthesis is required. A full list of publications is available.

Tracing the evolution of one of the most ancient major branches of flowering plants, this is a wide-ranging survey of state-of-the-art research on the early clades of the monocot phylogenetic tree. It explores a series of broad but linked themes, providing for the first time a detailed and coherent view of the taxa of the early monocot lineages, how they diversified and their importance in monocots as a whole. Featuring contributions from leaders in the field, the chapters trace the evolution of the monocots from largely aquatic ancestors. Topics covered include the rapidly advancing field of monocot fossils, aquatic adaptations in pollen and anther structure and pollination strategies and floral developmental morphology. The book also presents a new plastid sequence analysis of early monocots and a review of monocot phylogeny as a whole, placing in an evolutionary context a plant group of major ecological, economic and horticultural importance.
