About this book

Brassica crop species and their allies (Raphanus, Sinapis, Eruca, etc) are important sources of edible roots, stems, leaves, buds and inflorescences, as well as of edible or industrial oils, condiments and forage. This book presents both the basic and applied biological aspects of this diverse botanical group.

(R. Hell, Gatersleben) The individual chapters are written by experienced scientists in the respective fields and consequently represent state-of-the-art reviews. Since the chapters are clearly divided into relatively short paragraphs and cross-references are provided between different topics within the book, the reader can rapidly find his way even through less familiar scientific areas and methods.(...)The combination of technical information and comprehensive references make this volume a manual for all scientists involved in research with Brassicaceae.(...) Journal of Plant Physiology, 157, 461 - 466
