The only introductory text available with a detailed description of Mendelian genetic principles necessary for the understanding and application of plant breeding methods. Organized by principles rather than by crops, allowing the instructor to build the teaching system from simple concepts to complex programs. Covers such topics as: breeding objectives that introduce the student to the concept of program development by objectives rather than by individual crop species; program design and management; and new developments in scientific investigations, including wide genetic transfer and tissue culture. Questions to aid the student in understanding genetic principles are given at the end of several chapters. A glossary of important terms is also included.
