About this book

This third volume on "In Vitro Haploid Production in Higher Plants" consists of 20 chapters. Each chapter contains some introductory material on the selected plant, the techniques used most successfully for haploid production (anther culture, microspore culture, and ovary culture), the factors that influence the success of these techniques, the identification and genetic characterization of haploid regenerants, the applications of haploids in breeding, and a brief conclusion on the potential of haploid breeding for the crop. The plants covered include vegetable crops (Allium spp., Capsicum, Chicorium, Cucumis, Solanum melongena, Solanum tuberosum); fruit crops (Malus, Fragaria, Vitis); and other miscellaneous crops (Beta, Coffea, Ginkgo, Glycine, Medicago, Saccarum, Sinocalamus latiflora, forest trees). Some chapters also cover protoplast manipulation and genetic transformation.

' ... can be recommended to all scientists being involved in haploidy research.' Journal of Plant Physiology (1997) ' ... written in clear language and supplemented with valuable references. I recommend this Volume as a rich source of information.' Acta Physiologiae Plantarum, 20:2 (1998) 'This book is useful for plant breeders that are applying haploid induction in their breeding programmes, because well described and rather complete protocol-like reviews are presented. Furthermore this volume contains useful information for researchers that would like to apply this technology in the recalcitrant species described, because the basic information they may need is presented.' Scientia Horticulturae 73 (1998)
