It seems fully justified to quote the editors who say in the introduction: The Encyclopedia of Rose Science brings together in a single publication and on an unprecedented scale, overviews, explanations, and interpretations that no recent publication has attempted...This book is a real treasure for all who live in the rose world-breeders, researchers, growers, amateurs and students. Congratulations to the authors and editors! -ACTA PHYSCIOLOGIAE PLANTARUM (2004) "The book contains high quality scientific articles that are well written and carefully reviewed, edited, illustrated, with selected references given at the end of each article.
