About this book

Wild crop relatives are now playing a significant part in the elucidation and improvement of the genomes of their cultivated counterparts. Wild Crop Relatives: Genomic and Breeding Resources: Oilseeds includes comprehensive examinations of the status, origin, distribution, morphology, cytology, genetic diversity and available genetic and genomic resources of numerous wild crop relatives, as well as of their evolution and phylogenetic relationship. Further topics include their role as model plants, genetic erosion and conservation efforts, and their domestication for the purposes of bioenergy, phytomedicines, nutraceuticals and phytoremediation.

Wild Crop Relatives: Genomic and Breeding Resources comprises 10 volumes on Cereals, Millets and Grasses, Oilseeds, Legume Crops and Forages, Vegetables, Temperate Fruits, Tropical and Subtropical Fruits, Industrial Crops, Plantation and Ornamental Crops, and Forest Trees.

Media reviews

"Wild crop relatives are gold mines of valuable resources for the genetic improvement of cultivated crops. [...] Thirty-three authors from 11 countries have contributed to this very well-edited volume. [...] Considerable details are presented on gene functions and uses and potential for commercial exploitation. [...] It is a valuable and easy to read reference source with the latest information on wild crop relatives in oilseeds for students, teachers and scientists in the private and public sectors."
- S. Shanmugasundaram, Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 48 (1), 2012
