Chapters ...

  • The Origin of Clay Minerals in Soils and Weathered Rocks

    The importance of clay minerals and their origin is crucial to an understanding of the physico-chemical functions of the interface at the Earth’s surface. Their place is that of contact between the mineral world and the living world, plants and finally mankind. This contact zone is the realm of much of the environment as we see it today. If we can ...

  • Transgenic Maize

    As increasing global population and continuing economic development ensure the need for further production and cultivation of maize, the necessity of the application of transgenic technology to this model species and crop plant grows steadily. In Transgenic Maize: Methods and Protocols, experts in the various disciplines of the field contribute ...

  • Doubled Haploid Production in Crop Plants

    This is the first manual presenting a set of protocols for production of doubled haploids (DH) in 22 major crop plant species including 4 tree species. It contains various protocols and approaches of DH production proven for different germplasm of the same species. The protocols describe in detail all steps of DH production - from donor plants ...

  • Genotype x environment interactions. Challenges and opportunities for plant breeding and cultivar recommendations (includes a CD-ROM) (En)

    Series: FAO Plant Production and Protection PapersGenotype x environment interactions, leading to inconsistency of best-yielding material across cropping environments, challenges plant breeders and complicates cultivar recommendation. However, it may also offer opportunities, e.g. raising yields through material specifically adapted to a given ...
