  • Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement II

    Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement II

    Somatic hybrids through the fusion of plant protoplasts have widened the genetic variability of cultivated plants. As "Somatic Hybridization in Crop Improvement I", published in 1994, this volume describes how this discipline can contribute to the improvement of crops. It comprises 24 chapters dealing with interspecific and intergeneric somatic hybridization and cybridization. It is divided into four sections:I. Cereals: Barley, rice, and ...

  • Haploids in Crop Improvement I

    Haploids in Crop Improvement I

    The incorporation of haploids in breeding programs is one of the latest techniques used for crop improvement. The present volume comprises 30 chapters by international experts and informs on the methods involved, such as in vitro production of haploids by culture of anthers, studies of pollen embryogenesis, genetic analysis of haploids. It also discusses the genetic stability of haploid cell cultures as well as the practical importance of ...
