Biology and Breeding of Crucifers by Surinder Kumar Gupta

By Surinder Kumar Gupta

Considerable curiosity has constructed in recent times in crucifers and especially of their wild kin, as they include genetic fabric which may be applied for additional evolution of more desirable crop types via introgression and far-off hybridization. in the past, there was no unmarried quantity that focuses solely at the biology and breeding elements of the wild brassica species. Bringing jointly contributions of prime foreign specialists, Biology and Breeding of Crucifers offers a special viewpoint in this species that's so vital to investigate in crop genetics.

This treatise starts by means of exploring the systematics and phylogenies of untamed crucifers. Supported by means of sharp close-up pictures and outlines to help in identity of untamed crucifers, the e-book extra examines breeding tools, self-incompatibility, male sterility, germination, viability of seeds, and plant-insect interactions. precise debts of comparative cytogenetics, far-off hybridization, and the function of phytoalexins also are presented.

The publication includes complete discussions on floral diversifications, biotechnology, and haploidy breeding. Reflecting the worry of botanists and plant genetic engineers in improving rapeseed-mustard creation, the participants additionally learn genetic development of vegetable crucifers, business items from wild crucifers, and the renovation and upkeep of plant genetic resources.

The info contained during this textual content will support researchers in constructing how one can bring up genetic variability between brassicas, improve crop productiveness and caliber, and undertake synergistic ways to make sure nutrition and dietary safety all over the world.
