About this book

Substantial progress has been made in seed science during the past few years, emphasizing its important role in advancing plant biotechnology, agriculture, plant resource management, and conservation.

Providing comprehensive coverage of the latest seed science research including germination, dormancy, development, and desiccation tolerance, this book also details the most advanced methods and practices in seed biology, ecology and technology.


"The great expanse of seed research is shown in this...worthwhile volume."---STREAMS
