Crop Epigenetics offers a comprehensive look at the science of agricultural epigenetics. Grounded with an introduction to the fundamental epigenetic molecular mechanisms of inheritance and the role these play in programming development, Crop Epigenetics goes on to cover technologies for measuring epigenetic marks, lessons for crop plants from model plant species, and a whole range of phenotypic consequences subject to epigenetic regulation including parental imprinting, interaction with abiotic and biotic stresses, role in viral suppression and transposon, embryogenesis, fruit ripening, and much more. Crop Epigenetics concludes with an exploration of the scope for epigenetic selection and intervention in crop breeding, both for broad-acre arable crops and for perennial plantation and forest crops.
Written by an international team of crop and epigenetic experts, Crop Epigenetics will be a valuable resource for breeding companies, and advisors and practitioners in the fields of crop breeding, agronomy, and underlying disciplines.
