Legumes include many very important crop plants that contribute very critical protein to the diets of both humans and animals around the world. Their unique ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen in association with Rhizobia enriches soil fertility, and establishes the importance of their niche in agriculture. Divided into two volumes, this work presents an up-to-date analysis of in vitro and recombinant DNA technologies for the improvement of grain, forage and tree legumes. Volume 10A examines the current status and future prospects of challenges of the following: in vitro morphogenesis; biotic and abiotic stress tolerance; genomics; nitrogen fixation and utilization; nutritional improvement, and biodiversity of wild and tribal legumes.
From the Contents: Foreword.- Preface.- Part I: Technologies.- Part II: Nitrogen Metabolism.- Part III: Abiotic and Biotic Stress Tolerance.- Part IV: Product Quality Improvement.- Part V: Biodiversity.- Subject Index.
