Breeding of Ornamental Crops

Details

Discusses the evolution and genetic resources of flowers and ornamental crops. Biosynthetic pathways of various floral pigments, scent and aroma and its genetics have been described which will help in the manipulation of these traits. Considering that the interspecific and intergeneric hybridisation has played an important role in the evolution of these methods for overcoming pre- and post-zygotic barriers in hybridisation have been described, which will guide breeders to design hybridization program accordingly.

This book will be invaluable to undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and researchers in the field of ornamental crops breeding.
