An attempt is made, within a limited space, to indicate the importance of taxonomy, especially of the Spermatophyta, to the more recently developed branches of biology, and to show that these in turn are reacting on taxonomy. Certain basic logical problems are discussed and a via media between extreme lines of development is suggested. The interactions between taxonomy and cytology, genetics, ecology, palaeontology, phylogeny, biometrics, and physiology are discussed briefly with a few selected… Expand
Some Cytoecological Aspects in the Evolution of Certain Species of the Plant Genus Silene
In this paper ecological, cytological, and genetical viewpoints are considered in analysis of the nature of the relationships between various species of the genus Silene and between closely relatedExpand
The Taxonomic Units in Relation to Cytogenetics and Gene Ecology
  • R. Gates
  • Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1951
TLDR
The history of the species question is one of the longest and most complicated in biology, and the modern aspects of the subject in its modern aspects are dealt with, from a biological point of view. Expand
Forty Years of Genecology
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the position of genecology and attempt to distinguish the general principles that appear to have emerged. It also illustrates the synthesis ofExpand
Autecology and the species problem in Fucus
TLDR
Under the conditions prevailing in the characteristically zoned algal flora of an undisturbed region of a rocky coast, descriptions of the three species can be applied which fairly effectively distinguish one from the others. Expand
Systematics of biological systematics (or, taxonomy of taxonomy)
TLDR
Concerns include circumscription of research area; relationship with other biological sciences ― whether overlapping or not, and whether hierarchical or not; subdisciplinary classification; and nomenclatural analysis of the disciplinary titles. Expand
THE ECOSPECIES—PRELUDE TO DISCUSSION
TLDR
"Biosystematics" (or "Experimental Taxonomy"), compounded from Turesson's originally ecological system and Danser's "fertility-sterility" system, represents such a special classification and its value is in the analysis of problems of the genetics of wild populations. Expand
Experimentalists and naturalists in twentieth-century botany: Experimental taxonomy, 1920–1950
TLDR
The primary motivation behind much of experimental taxonomy was evolutionary, and beginning in the second decade of the century Hall and Clements exhorted taxonomists to take an explicitly evolutionary perspective on research. Expand
Species, Demes, and the Omega Taxonomy: Gilmour and The NewSystematics
TLDR
Connections are shown between Gilmour's ideas around defining the deme, his role in founding the Systematics Association, and his chapter ``Taxonomy and Philosophy'' in the book The New Systematics. Expand
From integrative taxonomy to species description: one step beyond.
TLDR
The aim of this article is to test the hypothesis that the majority of species will probably go extinct before they are described, as part of a renewal of taxonomy, illustrated by the increasing number of published articles related to species concepts, species delimitation methodology and its application.

Some fundamental problems of taxonomy and phylogenetics
TLDR
The article will be concerned primarily with the opinions of Scandinavian authors, though these problems are, of course, of a general nature and though much work has been done on the subject in other countries. Expand
Genetical and Taxonomic Investigations in the Genus Oenothera
The present study is the result of combining genetics with taxonomy in the investigation of a polymorphic group of wild plants. It shows a degree of multiformity which was hitherto unsuspected in theExpand
Contacts between Plant Classification and Experimental Botany
TLDR
There is a danger that classification for utilitarian purposes may be subordinated to classification for the sake of theoretical considerations, and phylogenetic considerations are sometimes allowed to dominate the practical issue of classification. Expand
THE INTERPRETATION OF THE FLOWER: A STUDY OF SOME ASPECTS OF MORPHOLOGICAL THOUGHT
TLDR
Goethe's theory of the equivalence of the vegetative shoot to the flower, in the angiosperms, is discussed and an attempt is made to evaluate the evidence for it. Expand
Origin of the Angiosperms
THE cyto-genetic work of the past decade has built up an increasingly impressive body of data demonstrating the evolutionary importance of fertile, true-breeding hybrids originating through doublingExpand
The Classification of Flowering Plants
TLDR
The Classification of Flowering Plants follows the system of Engler, but in a general and not in any very close manner, and with considerable alterations in the system that many will think to be great improvements. Expand

The study of fossil plants during the last quarter of a century has revealed a vast amount of information about the past history of many modern plant types. But while we have learned much about theExpand
The Old Morphology and the New
TLDR
A survey of the development of morphological concepts suggests that some of the difficulties in explaining how plants came to be such as the authors now see them may be due to the tacit acceptance of theories handed down by successive generations of teachers. Expand
