About this book

A collection of critical reviews by leading investigators examining plant reproduction and sexuality within a framework of evolutionary ecology.

"Some papers achieve their goal of reviewing and synthesizing, while others provide worthy comprehensive reviews. . . .A good reference volume for researchers." --Plant Genetics Newsletter
"This book provides a valuable reference for graduate students and researchers interested in evolutionary ecology and plant reproductive biology. Chapters by the Lovett Dousts, Bertin, Zimmerman, and Lee are especially notable in their critical and analytical perspectives on theory and current data."--REVIEWS
"Many individual chapters are superb and there is evidence of diligent editorial work (I strained to find a typographical error). For the specialist or one willing to brave a complex field relatively unaided, this is a most useful book."-- The Quarterly Review of Books
"Plant reproductive biology is currently undergoing rapid intellectual and empirical growth, brought about in large part by an infusion of new conceptual perspectives from which to describe and evaluate plant breeding
