About this book


There has been tremendous progress in the genetic transformation of agricultural crops, and plants resistant to insects, herbicides,and diseases have been produced, field tested and patented.
Transgenic Crops III compiles this information on ornamental, aromatic, medicinal and various other crops. It comprises 26 chapters and is divided into two sections.
I. Ornamental, Aromatic and Medicinal Plants: Anthurium, Antirrhinum, Artemisia, Begonia, Campanula, carnation, chrysanthemum, Dendrobium, Eustoma, Gentiana, Gerbera, Gladiolus, Hyoscyamus muticus, Hyssopus officinalis, ornamental Ipomoea, Leontopodium alpinum, Nierembergia, Phalaenopsis, Rudbeckia, Tagetes, and Torenia.
II. Miscellaneous Plants: Craterostigma plantagineum, Flaveria bidentis, Moricandia Solanum brevidens, and freshwater wetland monocots.
The book is of special interest to advanced students, teachers and research workers in the fields of plant breeding, genetics, molecular biology, plant tissue culture and plant biotechnology in general.
