  • Doubled Haploid Production in Crop Plants

    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 growth conditions, through in vitro procedures, media composition and preparation, to regeneration of ...

  • Molecular Biology in Plant Pathogenesis and Disease Management:

    Molecular Biology in Plant Pathogenesis and Disease Management:

    Investigations on various aspects of plant-pathogen interactions have the ultimate aim of providing information that may be useful for the development of effective crop disease management systems. Molecular techniques have accelerated the formulation of short- and long-term strategies of disease management. Exclusion and eradication of plant pathogens by rapid and precise detection and identification of microbial pathogens in symptomatic and ...

  • Plant Ecology, Herbivory, and Human Impact in Nordic Mountain Birch Forests

    Plant Ecology, Herbivory, and Human Impact in Nordic Mountain Birch Forests

    The successful long-term sustainable management of forests is dependent on our knowledge of their history, present state, and responses to changing environmental conditions. In this light, the text evaluates the Nordic mountain birch ecosystem with examples from different sites in the Nordic countries and Scotland.The authors analyse vegetation and soils, and investigate the influence of climate change, insect pests, grazing pressure by sheep an

  • Plant Epigenetics

    Plant Epigenetics

    The past fifteen years have witnessed major advances in epigenetics, one of the most popular and quickly evolving fields of modern science. In Plant Epigenetics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the most recent developments, examining in great detail the contribution of epigenetic regulation to cell function in plants. Chapters include a variety of protocols for studying the function of small non-coding RNAs, DNA methylation, ...

  • Plant Genomics

    Plant Genomics

    Plant genomics is a growing and constantly evolving field of study, one which has gained much ground in past years through the development of advanced research and data management tools. In Plant Genomics: Methods and Protocols, expert researchers explore the current issues and methodologies of this expanding field, specifically addressing areas of gene discovery and the functional analysis of genes with a focus on the primary tools and ...

  • The Origin of Clay Minerals in Soils and Weathered Rocks

    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 understand the way clays function in their interaction with plants, we can understand the major ...

  • Transgenic Maize

    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 readily reproducible protocols covering such topics as transformation methods, transgenic maize in ...
