Each plant species has its own unique passage that is affected by its gene pool, dispersal ability, interactions with competitors and pests, and the habitats and climactic conditions to which it is exposed. This book will explore plant species as dynamic entities within this passage, following the four stages of plant species life that normally occur. Those four stages can be identified as birth, expansion, differentiation and loss of cohesion, and decline/extinction. Each chapter focuses on part of the speciation process and examines it closely in the light of exploring the species passage from birth to death.

MEDIA REVIEWS
It deals with a very complex and controversial subject area and yet it does so in a way that is both balanced and lucid * TEG News *
... any amateur B.S.B.I. members who would regard themselves as belonging to any of the catergories listed above should get a copy of this book and read it: they will undoubtedly learn something of interest ... In short, this is an excellent book and I recommend it highly. * Watsonia *
... a good introduction to our current understanding of the origin, establishment, evolution and extinction of plant species ... a synthesis that is interesting and stimulating, and which I strongly recommend to all evolutionary biologists as valuable reading. * Heredity *
