Review:

From the reviews:

"This book offers an excellent overview of breeding and crop improvement of the major temperate tree fruit and berry crops. The authors include many of the premier fruit breeders working today. ... there is ample content in each chapter for a broad range of readers to gain an understanding of the status, direction, and potential outcome of breeding of the major temperate fruit crops. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (D. D. Archbold, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009)

"For anyone interested in the genetics, improvement through plant breeding or other scientific aspects of ... temperate fruit crops this book is a must. It will be of serious interest to plant breeding students and those from a wide range of disciplines involving the improvement of virtually any crop. ... The referencing is both extensive and up-to-date with each chapter giving the key botanical traits and origin of species for each crop. ... an essential reference for those involved in temperate fruit research." (Ronnie McNicol, Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 45, 2009)
