Description

The first book in this new series discusses grain legumes, which rank only second to cereals in supplying calories and protein to the world's population. With each chapter written by an internationally renowned scientist, the book reviews the role of alien germplasm for the domestication of each major legume crop. Discussion for each crop covers origin, germplasm exploration and maintenance; taxonomy; germplasm enhancement through chromosome engineering; mutation breeding; and contributions of biotechnological methods. Genetic Resources, Chromosome Engineering, and Crop Improvement: Grain Legumes serves as the standard reference for improving the yield for legumes.
