Cintamulya, Imas; Mawartiningsih, Lilik – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2018
The plant taxonomy textbooks that are generally used in colleges need to be complemented with a DNA-based molecular review. In general, plant taxonomy textbooks devote more space to morphology than to molecular-level characteristics. The research reported here used the results of DNA-based research to develop a molecular plant taxonomy textbook.…
