Plant Breeding provides comprehensive coverage of principles and practices used in plant breeding. Covering basic concepts of genetics and conventional methods, the book discusses all modern methods and advance techniques of plant breeding. Plant breeding is the purposeful manipulation of plant species in order to create desired genotypes and phenotypes for specific purposes. This manipulation involves either controlled pollination, genetic engineering, or both, followed by artificial selection of progeny.
This book is an excellent overview of merging plant breeding with crop biotechnology. The whole subject matter has been divided into eight chapters which includes aims of plant breeding, applications of plant genetic engineering, chromosome mechanics in plant breeding, transformation in genetic engineering of plants cloning, application of tissue culture in plant breeding, protoplasts for plant improvement, genetically modified of crop plants, seed development and production.
This book would be a valuable documents to the researchers and more precisely to the students who are interested in persuing the higher studies in the field of plant breeding and crop biotechnology.
