About this book

The need to understand the genetic diversity of plants has become a crucial part of conservation efforts, in part, because plants provide us with much of our food, construction materials, medicines and many other products. The authors of this book introduce essential theories and techniques needed to describe plant genetic diversity and explain how this data can be used to plan conservation strategies and implement sustainable exploitation of plant resources.
