Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Plant Breeding Reviews presents state-of-the-art reviews on plant genetics and the breeding of all types of crops by both traditional means and molecular methods. Many of the crops widely grown today stem from a very narrow genetic base; understanding and preserving crop genetic resources is vital to the security of food systems worldwide. 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.

Book News Annotation:

Ten articles review recent research on such topics as the development of virus resistant plants through engineering, the role of carbon isotope discrimination in plant breeding, drought and cold hardiness in wheat, tree and perennial fruit crops, and concepts and methods for analyzing regional trial data. Includes cumulative author and subjects indices for the 12 volumes.
