Biology and Breeding of Crucifers by Surinder Kumar Gupta

By Surinder Kumar Gupta

Substantial curiosity has built lately in crucifers and especially of their wild family members, as they include genetic fabric that could be applied for extra evolution of greater crop types via introgression and far-off hybridization. before, there was no unmarried quantity that focuses completely at the biology and breeding points of the wild brassica species. Bringing jointly contributions of prime foreign specialists, Biology and Breeding of Crucifers offers a distinct viewpoint in this species that is so vital to investigate in crop genetics. This treatise starts off by means of exploring the systematics and phylogenies of untamed crucifers. Supported by means of sharp close-up images and outlines to help in identity of untamed crucifers, the e-book additional examines breeding equipment, self-incompatibility, male sterility, germination, viability of seeds, and plant-insect interactions. specific money owed of comparative cytogenetics, far-off hybridization, and the position of phytoalexins also are provided. The booklet includes complete discussions on floral adaptations, biotechnology, and haploidy breeding. Reflecting the worry of botanists and plant genetic engineers in improving rapeseed-mustard creation, the members additionally learn genetic development of vegetable crucifers, commercial items from wild crucifers, and the protection and upkeep of plant genetic assets. the data contained during this textual content will help researchers in constructing how one can raise genetic variability between brassicas, increase crop productiveness and caliber, and undertake synergistic ways to make sure foodstuff and dietary safeguard all over the world.
