Lupins have until recently remained wild or semi-domesticated species of minor interest to agriculture, although their value as a rotation crop was noted 2,000 years ago. However, with the advent of the science of genetics in the early 20th century, full domestication of Lupinus species for use as crops was begun, by the combination of favorable genes such as those for low alkaloid content, non-shattering pods and soft seeds. As a result several lupin species have become an important part of temperate farming systems as a high protein crop for both animal and human consumption.

This book gives an authoritative account of the history, distribution and taxonomy of Lupinus species and the current knowledge of all aspects of their agronomy and impact on agriculture, including breeding, genetics and biotechnology, nutrition, nitrogen fixation, transport physiology, toxins, stress responses, pests and diseases, agronomy and farming systems, composition and food uses, economic value and trade. Contributions are made by researchers in Australia and Europe who have had key roles in lupin research. The book is essential reading for botanists, agronomists, plant breeders and geneticists involved with lupins and other grain legumes or with an interest in crop domestication and evolution. It also provides important information for lecturers and students of agriculture and for professionals in the livestock and food industries.

Review:


"This book presents contributions from mainly Australian researchers who have had major roles in modern lupin research. Important and authoritative accounts of the history, distribution and taxonomy of the Lupinus species are presented, in addition to informative articles on breeding and genetics. There are also chapters on many aspects of lupin physiology and agronomy, including nutrition, nodulation, transport and stress physiology, diseases and pests, farming systems and agronomy, economics, marketing and crop use. Most chapters present some previously unpublished results and many provide extensive and useful literature citations . . . [T]his book should be read and used as an important and necessary resource for anyone involved in lupin research. It is also recommended for those involved in minor agricultural species pioneering work or those people interested in crop domestication, evolution or plant breeding."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
