About this book

Horticultural Reviews is an open-ended, serial continuation series of state-of-the-art review articles on research into the production of commercial horticultural crops: vegetables, fruits, nuts, and ornamental plants of commercial importance. Articles perform the function of collecting, comparing, and contrasting the primary journal literature in order to form an overview of the topic. This detailed analysis should bridge the gap between the specialized researcher and the broader community of horticultural scientists. Typical articles from recent volumes include: post-pollination flower development, specialty mushrooms and their cultivation, fruit skin splitting and cracking, origin and dissemination of cherry, integrated pest management of greenhouse crops, response of fruit crops to flooding, heliconis - botany and horticulture of a new floral crop, root physiology of ornamental flowering bulbs, truffles and their cultivation.


Technologies for Nondestructive Quality Evaluation of Fruits and Vegetables (J. Abbott, et al.).; Texture of Fresh Fruit (F. Harker, et al.).; The Use of Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Plant Science (M. Faust, et al.).; Postharvest Technology and Utilization of Almonds (M. Schirra).; Indexes.
