About this book

The first-ever single-source reference work to inclusively cover classic and modern studies in plant biology in conjunction with research, applications, and innovations in crop science. From the fundamentals of plant growth and reproduction, to developments in agronomy and agricultural science, the Encyclopedia's authoritative content nurtures communication between these academically distinct yet intrinsically related spheres.

"This outstanding encyclopedia will become the standard online and print reference for plant and crop science. Carefully assembled, well written, and fully in line with modern scientific applications to these fields, the individual authors were well chosen and have contributed important essays on their individual subjects. An exciting book that ought to be on the shelves of all those interested in plant and crop sciences." - Peter H. Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.

".Do you need a handy source of concise, up-to-date, and accurate information on the most important topics in higher plant biology and agricultural applications? If so, the Encyclopedia of Plant and Crop Science will serve admirably. I plan to use the EPCS to check facts for lectures, articles, and book projects, as well as an introduction to topics outside my expertise." - Linda E. Graham, Professor of Botany and Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin, Madison, U.S.A.
