About this book

Contains definitions of the terms associated with plant breeding and related scientific and technological disciplines. Also includes a list of crops, weeds, and other important plants that includes common names, scientific descriptions, chromosome numbers, genome constitution, DNA content, and other data where available.

This edition includes many improved and additional tables and illustrative figures which are a valuable resource for readers, adding to its comprehensive coverage of the diverse sciences. Readers including undergraduate and postgraduate students and research scientists across a wide spectrum of the pure and applied sciences will find this dictionary a valuable reference, and I am not aware of other competitors that can match the breadth and quality of this edition. --M. E B. Dale, Journal of Experimental Agriculture. 2010 ... useful for all who tackle the rapid developments in this field. It includes figures describing approaches such as recurrent selection, various experimental and field designs, and procedures in gene transfers, with numerous supplementary tables. Also featured is an extensive list of important crop and other plants, but the bulk of the information is in dictionary format, describing and defining terms currently encountered by all levels of practitioners involved in the wide array of approaches to plant and crop improvement. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above. --W. Loescher, Michigan State University, CHOICE, May 2011, Vol. 48, No. 09
