Duane Isely was one of my very first botany profs as an undergrad, a
brilliant man and most engaging teacher who is much missed.  His essay "The
Disappearance" is a wonderfully articulate cautionary tale.  I still have
my plant tax students read it each year and write an essay in
response.  Another Isely essay, "Sequential Saviors," which appears in
Radford's 1986 textbook "Fundamentals of Plant Systematics" is also highly
germane to this thread.
