The present book has been written to fulfill the emergence of hue and cry for physical resources in the world which comprise land, water and the biological diversity. Management of landscapes for both production of food and conservation of ecosystem services and wild biodiversity forms the basis for eco-agriculture. In the regime of climate change, accelerated plant genetic resource collection, inventrization, PGR based technology development, assessment, refinement to maintain sustainability, issues related to framed rules, regulation and guidelines are focused in a comprehensive manner. In this book 16 chapters are well designed to cover origin, distribution, collection, evaluation, characterization, core set development, traditional approaches and most recent innovative (tissue culture, slow growth culture, cryo-techniques, molecular and biotechnological) protocols made to vegetable genetic diversity usable in breeding programme, setting trait specific goals for posterity and framing guideline suitable for Indian conditions. This book pertaining to vegetable genetic resources will be a milestone for stakeholders, policy makers, administrators, conservators, researchers, and teachers of India and abroad. It will cater to the needs of B.Sc. (Horticulture), B.Sc. (Agriculture), M.Sc. and Ph.D. (Vegetable Science) students. Collection to conservation methods have been elaborately dealt with, purposely to acquaint stakeholders to students with all aspects of vegetable genetic resources which is the backbone of vegetable crop improvement program. Glossary of important terms at the end is an added feature of this book.

Dr D R Bhardwaj obtained post-graduate and Ph. D. degrees (Horticulture with specialization in Vegetable Science) from Institute of Agricultural Sciences, B.H.U. Varanasi (U.P.). Dr Bhardwaj has an experience of 27 years in vegetable crops improvement (research and development) under Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi. Presently, he is working as a Principal Scientist (Vegetable Science) after joining of scientist (Vegetable Science) through ARS in 1991. He focused on augmentation of genetic resources and genetic improvement of vegetable crops since 1992 and continuing till date. He has identified 7 novel/unique genetic stocks which were registered/patented with ICAR-NBPGR, New Delhi. He has published more than 95 research papers in reputed national and international journal, 31 papers in proceedings, 32 popular articles, 125 abstracts and 36 book chapters on vegetable crops. He has to his credit of 3 books, 3 technical bulletins, 1 information bulletin (on Biodiversity of vegetable crops), 5 training manuals and 6 extension leaflets.
