  • Flower Breeding and Genetics

    Flowers are essential crops which beautify interiorscapes, outdoor landscapes and enhance human health. Floriculture is one of the fastest-growing sectors of commercial agriculture world-wide with many highly profitable crops. Such a diversity of new and domesticated flower crops is created by public and private sector flower breeders. This book ...

  • Postharvest Biology and Technology of Horticultural Crops-Principles and Practices for Quality Maintenance

    The ultimate goal of crop production is to provide quality produce to the consumers at reasonable rates. Most fresh produce is highly perishable, and postharvest losses are significant under the present methods of management in many countries. However, significant achievements have been made during the last few years to curtail postharvest losses ...

  • Parasitic Plants

    Parasitic plants are of great economic importance and cause huge crop losses worldwide. They present unique biological aspects and control problems. This title provides full coverage relating to the biology, diversity and control of parasitic flowering plants and will be of great use to plant scientists, agricultural and environmental ...

  • Petunia

    Petunia belongs to the family of the Solanaceae and is closely related to important crop species such as tomato, potato, eggplant, pepper and tobacco. With around 35 species described it is one of the smaller genera and among those there are two groups of species that make up the majority of them: the purple flowered P.integrifolia group and the ...

  • Agrobacterium: From Biology to Biotechnology

    Agrobacterium is a plant pathogen which causes the 'crown-gall' disease, a neoplastic growth that results from the transfer of a well-defined DNA segment ('transferred DNA', or 'T-DNA') from the bacterial Ti (tumor-inducing) plasmid to the host cell, its integration into the host genome, and the expression of oncogenes contained on the T-DNA. The ...

  • Thin Cell Layer Culture System: Regeneration and Transformation Applications

    Scientists within the field of plant biotechnology are in a constant search for techniques that can, in the simplest manner possible, answer the genetic and biochemical questions that underlie developmental processes. Thin Cell Layer Culture System not only takes an in-depth look at a technique that has had so much success in attempting, through ...
