Overview

Stresses the importance of germplasm exploration, maintenance, and assimilation for increasing yield for vegetable crops Presents methodologies for crop improvement, including conventional, cytogenetic, mutation, molecular, cell, and tissue cultures Reviews the role of alien germplasm for the domestication of each major vegetable crop Discusses the current status of taxonomy, chromosome constitution, genomes, and geographical distribution of economically important vegetable crops Features contributions from world-renowned crop/plant scientists The fourth book in this series, Genetic Resources, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop Improvement: Vegetable Crops, Volume 3 provides discussion subjects for each crop, including origin, germplasm exploration and maintenance, taxonomy, germplasm enhancement through chromosome engineering, mutation breeding, and contributions of biotechnological methods. As the first comprehensive book on vegetable crops in more than a decade, it features recent advances in genetic analysis and molecular methods. This book serves as the standard reference for laying out the best paths for improving vegetable crop yield to maximize return on the investments made in establishing and growing these crops.
