Considerable interest has developed in recent years in crucifers and particularly in their wild relatives, as they contain genetic material that may be utilized for further evolution of superior crop varieties through introgression and distant hybridization. Until now, there has been no single volume that focuses exclusively on the biology and breeding... more...

This book introduces the rapidly growing field of plant evolutionary ecology. It summarizes and synthesizes much primary literature, providing a historical context for the study of populations. It also examines both traditional (common gardens, reciprocal transplants) and modern (molecular genetic) approaches used to address questions about adaptation... more...
