Brings together a wealth of information on the rose. A team of internationally renowned experts have contributed scores of articles, from the history of rose cultivation to discoveries in rose genetics. Major subject areas include: Taxonomym morphology, and distribution of roses; Naming, registration, and identification of cultivars; Rose societies, collections, and international trials; Disease and pest control; Genetics, physiology, and biochemistry; Commercial breeding, propagation, and production; and Tissue culture.
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. The title is an important addition to the published literature as it helps bring some critical reference information on roses in one place. The title is highly recommended for all libraries." - E-STREAMS, 2004
