Media reviews

"Vince Rubatsky and Philipp Simon, both from the University of California, Davis, along with Carlos Quiros of the University of Wisconsin, have recently written a book providing in-depth information about umbelliferous vegetables. Umbelliferae includes carrots, celery, parsnips and parsley. Compared to other crops, umbelliferous vegetables receive little research attention. That's one of the driving forces behind the three experts deciding to write Carrots and Related Vegetable Umbelliferae. Chapters cover the gamut, from taxonomy to production, harvesting and post-harvest handling."
