Written by a distinguished group of international authorities, this is the first comprehensive review of the role of isozymes in plant genetics and breeding. Comprising two parts, it assembles a wealth of information on a broad spectra of plant groups. Part A opens with an introductory section giving a thorough overview and historical perspective of plant genetic and isozyme research. This is followed by studies involving basic scientific concepts, the role of enzyme electrophoresis in plant breeding, the use of isozymes in seed production and variety protection, and electrophoretic protocols. Part B is entirely devoted to summarizing in detail the current status of isozyme research in individual plant species. The scope of this monograph is such that it will be of great interest to a wide range of scientists including those in biochemistry, molecular genetics, evolutionary biology, cytogenetics, physiology and plant breeding.
