Plant Breeding Reviews

Plant Breeding Reviews Volume 21

€ 358.15

Plant Breeding Reviews is an ongoing series presenting state of the art review articles on research in plant genetics, especially the breeding of commercially important crops. Articles perform the valuable function of collecting, comparing, and contrasting the primary journal literature in order to form an overview of the topic.
