  • Vegetable seedling production manual (En)

    Series: FAO Plant Production and Protection PapersThis document was prepared to emphasize the importance of high-quality and true-to-type seedlings as a component of integrated production and pest management (IPPM) for increased crop productivity. The text reviews the current technologies for the production of healthy and vigorous transplants ...

  • Sweetness from starch. A manual for making maltose from starch (En )

    ''Sweetness from Starch'' describes methods adapted from those used in many cottage factories in Vietnam for making maltose syrup from cassava starch, using the enzymes in cereal seedlings. This technology produces a syrup containing about 60% maltose, 25% glucose and 15% of other sugars. Maltose is a type of sugar. As a sweetener, it can be used ...

  • Forest Regeneration Manual

    The Forest Regeneration Manual presents state-of-the-art information about current regeneration practices for southern pines in the United States. Over 1.2 billion seedlings of five major species -- loblolly, slash, longleaf, sand, and shortleaf -- are planted each year. In 22 chapters, the Manual details fundamental steps in establishing ...

  • Conifer Cold Hardiness

    Conifer Cold Hardiness provides an up-to-date synthesis by leading scientists in the study of the major physiological and environmental factors regulating cold hardiness of conifer tree species. This state-of-the-art reference comprehensively explains current understanding of conifer cold hardiness ranging from the gene to the globe and from ...

  • Survival Strategies of Annual Desert Plants

    Annual desert plant species of unrelated taxa in the Negev Desert of Israel have developed complementary sets of adaptations and survival strategies as ecological equivalents with physiological, morphological and anatomical resemblances, in the various stages of their life cycles. After 40 years of research in hot deserts Yitzchak Gutterman ...

  • Practical Applications of Chlorophyll Fluorescence in Plant Biology

    As this book will demonstrate, there have been numerous developments in the instrumentation and approaches for use of chlorophyll fluorescence as a probe to plant adaptation to an environment or as an indicator of the level of stress. The advantage of chlorophyll fluorescence over many other techniques is that it provides rapid and nondestructive ...

  • Forestry Nursery Manual: Production of Bareroot Seedlings

    The Forest Nursery Manual - a joint effort between the Department of Forest Science, Oregon State University, and the U.S.D.A. Forest Service, Division of State and Private Forestry - presents state-of-the art information about current bareroot-nursery practices and research. The Manual emphasizes all stages of seeding production from ...

  • Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    The rapid progress made on somatic embryogenesis and its prospects for potential applications in improving woody plants prompted us to edit this book initially in three volumes, and now to add two more volumes. The editors were all convinced that such a treatise was needed and would be extremely useful to researchers and students. This Volume ...

  • Protocol for Somatic Embryogenesis in Woody Plants

    Earlier, we edited a well received series on 'Somatic embryogenesis in woody trees', volumes 1 to 6. These volumes provided readers detailed extensive reviews on somatic embryogenesis of important angiosperm and gymnosperm tree species; an excellent source of information for newcomers or those already engaged in research. However, these book ...

  • Dispersal Biology of Desert Plants

    Dispersal processes have important effects on plant distribution and abundance. Although adaptations to long range dispersal (telechory) are by no means rare in desert plants, many desert plant species do not possess any features to promote dispersal (atelechory), while others have structures that hamper dispersal (antitelechory). The high ...

  • 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 ...

  • Planted Forests: Contributions to the Quest for Sustainable Societies

    Planted forests, from irrigated eucalypts in Brazil to Douglas-fir seedlings in the mountains of Oregon, are described and discussed by international experts. The varieties, purposes, forms, and ecological, economic and social aspects of planted forests are considered in technical details and in case studies from temperate and tropical ...

  • Concepts in Mycorrhizal Research

    Mycorrhiza will be the focus of research and study for the coming decade. Successful survival and maintenance of plant cover is mostly dependent on mycorrhization. During the last decade about ten books have appeared on various aspects of mycorrhiza, including two on methodology. The present book has been compiled to give a complete and ...
