Media reviews

"This book is one of a multi-author series describing the wild relatives, and their genomic and breeding resources [...] . This book focuses on the fruit and other products available from wild relatives of tropical and subtropical fruit crops covering their origins, distribution, morphology, cytology and genomics on the basis of their evolution and phylogenetics. [...] The quality of the data and references in this review makes it an ideal foundation for students and researchers working to improve the utility of fruit plants."
- Richard Wilkins, Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 48 (2), 2012
