About this series
Modern plant breeders need to have a wide grasp of scientific knowledge but in a form which is relevant to their activities and needs. Although there are numerous published books which cover areas relevant to plant breeding, very few are written for the student who is learning the subject of plant breeding or the breeder who is trying to improve a particular crop species. The Plant Breeding series will provide an up-to-date, comprehensive set of books covering this diverse but important area. The books in the series are written in an easily accessible form, specifically with plant breeders and students of plant breeding in mind.
