About this book

This book presents the implications of the genomic revolution for conifers, which go all the way from a better understanding of the evolution of these organisms to new knowledge about the molecular basis of quantitative trait variation, both playing important roles in their domestication. Internationally reputed researchers in this field have contributed to this book, reviewing the genetics, genomics and breeding of conifers.
