9781493914463: Industrial Crops: Breeding for BioEnergy and Bioproducts (Handbook of Plant Breeding)

The volume on Industrial Crop Breeding will be part of the series, Handbook of Plant Breeding. This volume will focus on the emerging area of plant breeding for sustainable production of transportation fuels and bio based products using the current advances in the field. The book is scheduled to consist of a total number of 30 chapters divided into four sections. The sections will emphasize crops being considered for different challenge areas including oil crops for biodiesel; sugar, starch and cellulosic crops for biofuel; crops for bio products and issues and future prospects. A chapter introducing the first three sections will also be included. Outstanding scientists for each crop species are proposed as senior authors, who may invite co-authors to contribute part of a chapter to provide additional expertise or perspective. The proposed authors will represent various national and international institutions to get a more diverse view on the topic and somehow get a global view on the common issues that researchers on industrial crops are facing. The book will comprise primarily of specific issues, available germplasm, breeding techniques, and potential geographical areas of production pertaining to individual crops being considered for industrial uses. We hope to encourage the proposed authors of new crops to provide an estimate of the crop readiness for commercial development and discuss the limitations. This book will be will be of interest and envisioned to serve as an updated reference to researchers in both academic and industrial setting, to students and teachers of plant breeding and to policy makers who are looking for alternative solutions to dependency on imported petroleum products.

From the Back Cover:

Industrial Crops is the ninth book of the Handbook of Plant Breeding series. This volume focuses on the emerging areas of plant breeding for sustainable production of transportation fuels and biobased products using the current advances in the field.  Individual chapters discuss crops being considered for different challenge areas such as oil crops for biodiesel; sugar, starch and cellulosic crops for biofuel; crops for bioproducts; and issues and future prospects.  Specific issues covered encompass available germplasm, breeding techniques, and potential geographical areas of production for industrial uses.  Outstanding scientists representing various national and international institutions contributed chapters within their expertise for each crop species.  Diverse views and solutions are presented on the common issues that researchers on industrial crops are facing.

This book serves as an up-to-date reference to researchers in both academic and industrial setting, to students and teachers of plant breeding, and to policy makers who are looking for alternative solutions to dependency on imported petroleum products.

Review:

“This volume ... reviews the current status of breeding efforts for numerous industrial crops, nearly 20 in all, with potential for production either on a large scale or within a narrower climatic niche. ... These thorough, extensively referenced reviews serve as an excellent introduction to this diverse group of crops. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals/practitioners.” (R. M. Warner, Choice, Vol. 52 (11), July, 2015)
