9780199282616: Plant Biotechnology: The Genetic Manipulation of Plants

Throughout history, humankind has pursued means to improve the yield of crop plants through selective plant breeding and hybridization. Today, genetic manipulation provides a powerful tool for directing plant breeding. But how is genetic manipulation implemented? What benefits can it offer? And what are the broader issues surrounding the use of this technology?

The second edition of Plant Biotechnology: The Genetic Manipulation of Crop Plants presents a balanced, objective exploration of the technology behind genetic manipulation, and the application of this technology to the growth and cultivation of plants. The book describes the techniques underpinning genetic manipulation in a clear, lucid manner, and this influential tool is used in practice.

Review:


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "Reviews from previous edition Misinformation is rife, sadly, and there is a clear need for good sources of accurate and appropriate accounts of plant biotechnology development. Adrian Slater, Nigel Scott and Mark Fowler have produced just such a textbook, providing a critical appraisal of the genetic manipulation of crop plants for advanced undergraduate study and the postgraduate student market."--W. Paul Davies, Annals of Botany, Vol. 94. No 4, October 2004.


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "Quite simply this is a superb book and a valuable resource for all those with an interest in the genetic modification of plants, either as students of the science or potential consumers of the produce. In short a great book, well worth the money."--Microbiology Today, Vol. 31, February 2004, p45.


"In short, this great volume is very scientific, quite simply a joy to read, and is worth having." -- Quarterly Review of Biology
