About this book

This book series describes the scientific principles of the biology and production of major horticultural crops, considered on a world-wide basis. This volume considers the vegetable Umbelliferae, particularly carrots, celery, fennel, parsley and parsnip. It also provides brief coverage of lesser known vegetable Umbelliferae such as coriander, chervil and skirret as well as herbs such as dill, anise, caraway and cumin.

"Vince Rubatsky and Philipp Simon, both from the University of California, Davis, along with Carlos Quiros of the University of Wisconsin, have recently written a book providing in-depth information about umbelliferous vegetables. Umbelliferae includes carrots, celery, parsnips and parsley. Compared to other crops, umbelliferous vegetables receive little research attention. That's one of the driving forces behind the three experts deciding to write Carrots and Related Vegetable Umbelliferae. Chapters cover the gamut, from taxonomy to production, harvesting and post-harvest handling."
