Which text book for plant systematic course?

Another taxonomic botany textbook that you might try is this:

Porter, C.L.  1967 (or any update?).  Taxonomy of flowering plants.  W.H.
Freeman & Co., San Francisco.

I have not taught taxonomic botany for about 4 years, so I do not know if
this book is still in print.  A quick check in a bookstore for books in
print should solve this quickly.

Hope this helps.
