About this book

Breeding Crops with Resistance to Diseases and Pests is the most up-to-date text book on this topic targeted towards students in Plant Sciences. Breeding Crops with Resistance to Diseases and Pests describes the most basic elements in plant pathogen interactions and defence strategies in plants. The scientific background is explained as far as it is relevant for breeders to make sensible choices in designing and running their breeding work.

A major part of Breeding Crops with Resistance to Diseases and Pests presents the options plant breeders have to consider such as what strategy to follow, what aspects to evaluate or measure, and whether it is best to apply mixtures of pathotypes or to test pathotypes one by one.

Professionals, notably in the field of Plant Breeding, may also use it as a manual for disease resistance breeding. Breeding crops with resistance to diseases and pests should be of interest to anyone interested in plant defence strategies and the enhancement of resistance in modern cultivars. In order to enliven and illustrate the text, background reading, interesting examples and exceptions, concrete cases of application and further reading are given.

Supplementary reading is readily distinguished from the main text by a different typography, so it is clear what material is most relevant and what is meant as examples supporting the main story lines. Most sections are followed by exercises so that students can test whether they understood the material that was presented.
