Plant Breeding Reviews

Plant Breeding Reviews V29

€ 358.15

Plant Breeding Reviews presents state of the art reviews on plant genetics and the breeding of all types of crops by both traditional means and molecular methods. Many of the crops widely grown today stem from a very narrow genetic base; understanding and preserving crop genetic resources is vital to the security of food systems worldwide.
