Until recently, plant breeders have depended primarily on classicaltools to develop new and improved products for producers andconsumers. However, with the advent of biotechnology, breeders areincreasingly incorporating molecular tools in their breeding work.In recognition of the current state of methods and theirapplication, this text introduces both classical and moleculartools for plant breeding. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectualproperty, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organicbreeding), and more are addressed in this state of the art text.The final 8 chapters provide a useful reference on breeding thelargest and most common crops. In addition, over 25 plant breedersshare their professional experiences while illustrating concepts inthe text. Features include: * Comprehensive presentation of both classical and molecularplant breeding tools * Industry highlight essays from over 25 professional plantbreeders * Chapter introductions, summaries and discussion questions * Easy reference glossary * Reference chapters on breeding 8 of the largest and most commoncrops Artwork from the book is available to instructors online at www.blackwellpublishing.com/acquaah.An Instructor manual CD-ROM for this title is available.
