" [ from the Publisher's Note ] Michurin was one of the founding fathers of scientific agricultural selection. He made a major contribution in the development of genetics, especially in the field of pomology, researching cell structure and experimenting with artificial polyploidy. He proved that predominance depends on heredity, ontogenesis, and phylogenesis of the initial cell structure and also on individual features of hybrids and conditions of cultivation. In his works, Michurin assumed a possibility of changing genotype under external influence [ adapted from Wikipedia entry, see which for more information]. The contents are in four main sections - Autobiographical Data ; Principles and Methods (egs Breeding New Plum Varieties in a Severe Climate, How the Success of Hybridization May be Faclilitated, A Critical Survey of Recent Achievements in Genetics [an 80 pages section], etc) ; Process of Breeding and Pomological Description of Michurin Varieties , this section includes varieties of Apple, Pear, Cherries, Quinces, Plums, Apricots, Almonds, (egs Bellefleur Kitaika, Paradox, Pippin Shafranny, etc) ; Miscellaneous , egs Seeds - Their Life and Preservation until Planing, To Siberian Fruit Growers, Drought Control in Fruit Growing, etc ; plus Indexes to Subject and Latin Names.

Item Description: Foreign Languages Publishing House, 1950., Moscow:, 1950. Tall 8vo. xix, 496 pp. 200 illus. (some folding), index. Green cloth. Previous ownership signature (R. Kargon). Very good. "Michurin made a major contribution in the development of genetics, especially in the field of pomology. In his cytogenetic laboratory, he researched cell structure and experimented with artificial polyploidy. Michurin studied the aspects of heredity in connection with the natural course of ontogenesis and external influence, creating a whole new concept of predominance. He proved that predominance depends on heredity, ontogenesis, and phylogenesis of the initial cell structure and also on individual features of hybrids and conditions of cultivation. In his works, Michurin assumed a possibility of changing genotype under external influence. Michurin was one of the founding fathers of scientific agricultural selection. He worked on hybridization of plants of similar and different origins, cultivating methods in connection with the natural course of ontogenesis, directing the process of predominance, evaluation and selection of seedlings, acceleration of process of selection with the help of physical and chemical factors." â" Wikipedia.
