Crop Physiology: Applications for Genetic Improvement and Agronomy (Google eBook)
Academic Press, Apr 10, 2009 - Technology & Engineering - 1000 pages
Never before has a holistic approach to sustainable agriculture and plant physiology been presented in one source.
This book compiles a multi-authored and international perspective on the ways in which crop physiology could be integrated with other disciplines. With a focus on genetic improvement and agronomy, this book addresses the challenges of environmentally sound production of bulk and quality food, fodder, fiber and energy, which are of ongoing international concern.
* Provides a view of crop physiology as an active source of methods, theories, ideas and tools for application in genetic improvement and agronomy
* Written by leading scientists from around the world with publication records of demonstrable influence and impact
* Combines environment-specific cropping systems and general principles of crop science to appeal to advanced students and scientists in agriculture-related disciplines, from molecular sciences to natural resources management
