Summary "This book is a comprehensive reference work on the current status of biotechnology of the major temperate, subtropical and tropical fruit and nut crop species of the world. It is a replacement for Biotechnology of Perennial Fruit Crops (eds Hammerschlag and Litz, CABI, 1992) and includes coverage of more fruit as well as nut crop species. Contributors are leading researchers from the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. This book will be of significant interest to those working within the areas of plant biotechnology, perennial plant breeding and genetics and horticulture."--Jacket
