This book on temperate fruit crops in warm climates is the first one dedicated to this subject. It presents a wealth of data regarding growing these crops in warm climates. It covers two aspects: the genetic approach, that led to a search of adapted cultivars and rootstock for these climates; and the physiological-horticultural approach that led to developing means to improve performance of these species under such conditions. The book is intended for the reader who is interested in temperate fruits and their adaptation to various growing conditions, especially under tropical and subtropical climates. This book, which is the combined efforts of specialists in their field around the world, covers major disciplines of plant culture under warm climates and deals with detailed information on stone and pome fruits, grapes, kiwi nuts, and small fruits.
'As a whole, however, it must be stated that the book is indispensable for all scientists who teach or do research in this expanding field. [...]t will be useful for many years since its contents will certainly not be outdated as rapidly as is common in fields such as molecular biology where the accumulation of knowledge is proceeding at an explosive pace.' Journal of Plant Physiology (2002)
