    Fruits and Nuts

    Genome Mapping and Molecular Breeding in Plants presents the current status of the elucidation and improvement of plant genomes of economic interest. The focus is on genetic and physical mapping, positioning, cloning, monitoring of desirable genes by molecular breeding and the most recent advances in genomics. The series comprises seven volumes: Cereals and Millets; Oilseeds; Pulses, Sugar and Tuber Crops; Fruits and Nuts; Vegetables; Technical ...

  • Functional-Structural Plant Modelling in Crop Production

    Functional-Structural Plant Modelling in Crop Production

    Functional-structural plant models (FSPMs) describe in quantitative terms the development over time of the three-dimensional (3D) structure of plants as governed by physiological processes and affected by environmental factors. FSPMs are particularly suited to analyse problems in which the spatial structure of the plant or its canopy is an essential factor to explain, e.g., plant competition (intra-plant, inter-plant, inter-species) and the ...

  • Post-harvest Pathology

    Post-harvest Pathology

    As a collection of papers that includes material presented at the 2008 International Congress for Plant Pathology, this text features research right at the leading edge of the field. The latest findings are particularly crucial in their implications for fruit production; an important market sector where in some areas up to 50 per cent of the crop can be lost after harvest. While post-harvest fruit treatments with fungicides are the most ...

  • Protocols for Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits

    Protocols for Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits

    Micropropagation has become a reliable and routine approach for large-scale rapid plant multiplication, which is based on plant cell, tissue and organ culture on well defined tissue culture media under aseptic conditions. A lot of research efforts are being made to develop and refine micropropagation methods and culture media for large-scale plant multiplication of several number of plant species. However, many forest and fruit tree species ...

  • Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening

    Biochemistry of Fruit Ripening

    The subject of fruit ripening is one of vital interest and importance to the massive international fruit growing and fruit trade industries. This book is the definitive handbook on the subject, bringing together a vast wealth of important information from an experienced team of international contributors.

  • In vitro Haploid Production in Higher Plants

    In vitro Haploid Production in Higher Plants

    This third volume on In Vitro Haploid Production in Higher Plants consists of 20 chapters. Each chapter contains some introductory material on the selected plant, the techniques used most successfully for haploid production (anther culture, microspore culture, and ovary culture), the factors that influence the success of these techniques, the identification and genetic characterization of haploid regenerants, the applications of haploids ...

  • Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits

    Micropropagation of Woody Trees and Fruits

    The key technology for biomass production of woody species is propagation via micropropagation. Recent development of in vitro culture techniques has made it possible to commercially propagate useful trees, both forest and fruit trees. In this book comprehensive information is provided on micropropagation of economically important forest and fruit trees, which is usually available in scattered literature. Topics cover a wide range, from tropical ...

  • Plant Growth Substances

    Plant Growth Substances

    In a convenient, single-source reference, this book examines plant growth substances and their relationship to a wide range of physiological processes, ranging from seed germination through the death of the plant. If offers a clear illustration of the pragmatic uses of plant substances in agriculture and demonstrates how basic laboratory research has translated into increased production and profit for the grower. This work begins by ...

  • Population Genetics of Forest Trees

    Population Genetics of Forest Trees

    This volume contains 19 invited papers from the International Symposium on POPULATION Genetics of Forest Trees which was held in Corvallis, Oregon, USA, July 31-August 2, 1990. The papers summarize and review the contributions of biochemical genetic markers to the understanding of population genetic structure and evolutionary biology of forest trees, and identify promising areas for future research. Applications of biochemical genetic ...
