about this item

Chronicling the rise of the cladistic approach to classifying animals, Rieppel traces the development of phylogenetic systematics against the foil of idealistic morphology through a century of German biology. His topics include the evolutionary turn in comparative anatomy, the rise of holism in German biology, the rise of German ("******") biology, the ideological instrumentalization of biology, a new beginning: from speciation to phylogenetics, and the conceptual foundations of phylogenetic systematics.
