Críticas:

At long last, we have a single source on the classification of the diversity of life based upon modern methodological and conceptual advances. This book is a milestone that will move forward the teaching and understanding of the great tree of life and its branches. The authors are to be commended for creating a book that will be of value to anyone interested in the diversity and history of life on earth, from bacteria to orchids from fungi to man.--Dennis W. Stevenson, Vice President for Botanical Science & Rupert Barneby Curator, New York Botanical Garden

Reseña del editor:

Did you know that you are more closely related to a mushroom than to a daisy? That crocodiles are closer to birds than to lizards? That dinosaurs are still among us? That the terms "fish," "reptiles," and "invertebrates" do not indicate scientific groupings? All this is the result of major changes in classification, whose methods have been totally revisited over the last thirty years. Modern classification, based on phylogeny, no longer places humans at the centre of nature. Groups of organisms are no longer defined by their general appearance, but by their different individual characteristics. Phylogeny, therefore, by showing common ancestry, outlines a tree of evolutionary relationships from which one can retrace the history of life. This book diagrams the tree of life according to the most recent methods of classification. Each branch of the tree is a group that includes the hypothetical ancestor and all its descendants. The basis for classification is the evolutionary adaptations that the unique ancestor passed to its modern-day descendants. By showing how life forms arose and developed and how they are related, "The Tree of Life" presents a key to the living world in all its dazzling variety.
