Dear colleagues,

The International Organization of Plant Biosystematists has organised its
triannual symposium in Amsterdam in 1998 with the main theme "Plant
Evolution in Man-made Habitats". The proceedings are being published at the
end of 1999. The volume contains 19 publications which are all peer reviewed
in order to reach a sufficient quality. Due to logisitic reasons the volume
came available at the end of last month, which means that it is now
available for purchase. The book presents the state-of-the-art in
evolutionary biology, especially domestication. We hope that you will inform
your colleagues and forward this message to your librarian.

The volume is published as:
