A comprehensive series on plant genomics with its impact on the assessment of biodiversity and evolution covering all groups of plant kingdom. The book aims to cover, in successive volumes, comprehensive reviews, concepts and discussion on the results of genome analysis and their impact on systematics, taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution of all plant groups. This volume covers the Lower Groups of plants.
