für Systematik, Pflanzengeschichte und Pflanzengeographie (ISSN 0006-8152)
Ever since publication of the first issue of Botanische Jahrbücher (Botanical Yearbooks) more than 100 years ago, the Botanische Jahrbücher have cultivated discussion and published groundbreaking results in the field of systematics in the widest sense. In this way, they fulfilled a task of world-wide recognition. In Botanische Jahrbücher Adolf Engler, the renowned systematicist and founder of the journal, created a forum for all those branches of botany which, up to the present day, are closely connected and cover a vast ground from morphology and anatomy by way of taxonomy and phylogeny to plant geography.
Botanische Jahrbücher publish original contributions in English, German and French in the fields of phytotaxonomy, morphology and geobotany.
Botanische Jahrbücher were renamed to Plant Diversity and Evolution with volume 128 (2010).
One volume (consisting of four issues) is published annually.
