Book review of B. B. Klitgaard & A. Bruneau (eds.): Advances in Legume Systematics. = Part=20 10, Higher Level Systematics, Royal Botanic Gardens (Kew) 2003 in Michael Sanderson, Systematic Biology 54(3) (June 2005), 510f. Basically, cladistics has utterly annihilated the traditional classif= ication=20 of the Leguminosae (aka Fabaceae), and the review says a bit on how t= he=20 Phylocode (sic)* could cope with this situation; the book itself only= coins=20 informal names like "genistoids", "core genistoids", "babijt clade", = "CRIM=20 clade"... * Something tells me we should quietly get rid of that capital C in t= he=20 middle, as Sanderson has inadvertently done. It doesn't look terribly= =20 serious, more like a commercial ad... -------------------------------- Not a must-read, but among my favorite journal titles: "Hidden Likeli= hood=20 Support in Genomic Data: Can Forty-Five Wrongs Make a Right?"
