Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement I

Thirty-five chapters on various aspects of fusion of plant protoplasts and somatic hybridization deal with the regeneration of interspecific and intergeneric somatic hybrids and cybrids in various plants: cereals, grasses, legumes, potato, tomato, eggplant, lettuce, Brassica, Datura, Hyoscyamus, Nicotiana, Catharanthus, Rauwolfia, Citrus, Poncirus, Prunus, Pyrus, Populus, algae, bryophytes, and ferns. The implications of somatic hybridization in gene transfer in wide crosses and for the induction of genetic variability in various crops are discussed. The book is an invaluable source of information for advanced students, teachers, and research scientists in the field of plant breeding, genetic engineering, plant tissue culture, and general plant biotechnology.
