    This book entitled "Genetics, Genomics and Breeding of Bamboos" provides a comprehensive overview on the economically and ecologically important non-timber plant group bamboo. The book focuses on the most recent advances in bamboo research in diverse fields including botany, genetic resources, traditional and molecular breeding, disease and pest resistance, tissue culture and genetic transformation and genomics perspective. The different chapters are authored by internationally reputed experts on this plant and is a good source of information for students, scientists, farmers, and bamboo resource management advisers on this plant, which is gaining increase importance on international commerce.
