About this book

Comprises invited papers by leading researchers, from the first Horticulture Research International Conference, held at Wellesbourne in October 1997.


Genetic approaches to manipulation of fruit development and quality in tomato; improving tomato fruit quality by cultivation; applications of molecular biology and genetic manipulation to understand and improve quality of fruits and vegetables; gene expression in ripening bananas; genes fro fruit quality in strawberry; manipulating the ethylene receptor; environmental requirements as determined by rooting potential in leafy cuttings; use of mutants and molecular biology to understand competence for root formation; the regulation of flowering in arabidopsis in response to day length; control of plant architecture in antirrhinum and arabidopsis; opportunities for gene mapping; physiology analysis of the flowering process; genetic and environmental control of flowering in strawberry; molecular mechanisms involved in the control of tuber formation in potato; regulation of abscisic acid and water stress response genes; manipulation of growth of horticultural crops under environmental stress; transgenic manipulation of phytochrome gene expression - biotechnological potential; regulation of stem extension by temperature; modification of plant morphology by genetic manipulation of gibberellin biosynthesis.
