Publisher Comments:

Plant Breeding Reviewspresents state-of-the-art reviews on plant genetics and the breeding of all types of crops by both traditional means and molecular methods.

The emphasis of the series is on methodology, a fundamental understanding of crop genetics, and applications to major crops. It is a serial title that appears in the form of one or two volumes per year.
