In the past 50 years the field of systematics has
grown to encompass much more than the classification of organisms.  It
comprises  the  study of phylogenetic relationships  among  organisms,
character  evolution, biogeography, and macroevolution.   Phylogenetic
thinking has been incorporated into molecular biology, ecology, devel-
opmental biology, and population biology, to name a few.

The  journal  Systematic  Biology publishes papers which  present  the
latest  advances  in phylogenetic methodology,  discuss  philosophical
issues related  to evolutionary tree construction and  classification,
and  provide examples of the applications of these techniques to  var-
ious  kinds of data.  Recent software and books are reviewed  in  each
issue.

===========================================================================
A  list called systbiol at public.sdsu.edu has recently been  established
for  the  Society of Systematic Biology.  This list  is  primarily  an
address  list  for  the Society.  You will NOT receive  a  barrage  of
messages, but only those that are important to the society.  These may
include meeting announcements, calls for or announcements of symposia,
election ballots, announcement for Mayr award, membership information,
announcements  of  important additions to the  Society  of  Systematic
Biology   Homepage  (http://www.utexas.edu/ftp/depts/systbiol/),   and
other items of interest to society members.

This  listserv  is NOT a discussion group or a format  for  advertise-
ments!  There  are many such forums available on  the  Internet.   See
"Other  Sites"  under  "Miscellaneous" on the  Society  of  Systematic
Biology Homepage.

If you are interested, we encourage you to subscribe and to send  this
message to others who might like to be on the list.

To subscribe, send the message below to: listserv at public.sdsu.edu
