Page ii - ... and professional scientists in all branches of biology who are entitled to purchase its volumes at a discounted price. The first of the Systematics Association's publications, The New Systematics, edited by its then president Sir Julian Huxley, was a classic work. Over 60 volumes have now been published in the Association's 'Special Volume' series often in rapidly expanding areas of science where a modern synthesis is required.
