About this book

The technologies for analysing genomes are becoming so efficient and productive that biology is being swept along on a tidal wave of genetic information. More than ever before, physiologists are needed to help sort out what, if anything, all this DNA does. This volume comprises a collection of case studies in which careful analysis of developmental and adaptive characters by plant physiologists and biochemists has been given a new and immensely fruitful dimension by assigning these traits to molecular maps. These edited papers were presented at the Second New Phytologist Symposium, held at the University of Wales, Bangor in April 1997. The meeting captured the excitement of a time when disciplines are combining synergistically to revitalise whole areas of traditional plant science, and this volume is a timely record of the event.

The book can be recommended to all interested in genetical mapping. Journal of Agronomy and Crop Science
