Modern plant taxonomy is an extensive field that is increasingly benefiting from the achievements of many other fields of biological sciences, such as genetics, cytology, molecular biology, ecology, phytogeography, and paleobotany. The influence of these branches of science on plant taxonomy is expressed not only through a significant multiplication of information and detailed data, but also by new phylogenetic concepts. Reconstructing phylogenetic compounds that unite all lines is a great challenge. The process of describing a new species is considered equivalent to generating a new hypothesis in phylogenesis. Hence taxonomy and phylogenetics are inseparably connected with each other. Advances in taxonomy and phylogenetic taxonomy have inspired us to designate a special issue of Acta Societatis Botanicorum Poloniae for them. Therefore, we cordially invite contributions (original articles, review articles, and short communications) focused on alpha taxonomy, evolutionary and numerical taxonomy, and phylogenetics including the following areas:
- vascular plants,
- plant component in lichen.
