  • Genomics and Breeding for Climate-Resilient Cropsby Chittaranjan Kole

    Springer 2013; US$ 209.00

    Climate change is expected to have a drastic impact on agronomic conditions including temperature, precipitation, soil nutrients, and the incidence of disease pests, to name a few. To face this looming threat, significant progress in developing new breeding strategies has been made over the last few decades. The second volume of Genomics and Breeding... more...

  • Parasitic Orobanchaceaeby Daniel M. Joel; Jonathan Gressel; Lytton J. Musselman

    Springer 2013; US$ 209.00

    This book was written in response to significant recent advances in understanding the mechanisms of parasitism in the Orobanchaceae, and breakthroughs in the control of the parasitic weeds Striga and Orobanche. It consists of 26 contributions by internationally recognized leading scientists. The main book chapters are grouped into two parts:·      ... more...

  • Genomics of Plant Genetic Resourcesby Roberto Tuberosa; Andreas Graner; Emile Frison

    Springer 2013; US$ 209.00

    Our lives and well being intimately depend on the exploitation of the plant genetic resources available to our breeding programs. Therefore, more extensive exploration and effective exploitation of plant genetic resources are essential prerequisites for the release of improved cultivars. Accordingly, the remarkable progress in genomics approaches and... more...

  • Biotechnology and Its Applications in Agricultural Scienceby P.B. Bansal

    GeneTech Books 2006; US$ 50.00

    The recent development in biotechnology have led to rapid progress in understanding the genetic basis of living organisms, and the ability to develop products and processes useful to human and animal health, food and agriculture, and industry. In agriculture, there is increasing use of biotechnology for genetic mapping and marker-assisted selection... more...

  • Assessment of Improved Crop Production Technologiesby Ajoy Gangopadhyay

    GeneTech Books 2007; US$ 50.00

    Low agricultural productivity in developing countries is a common feature. One of the reason is non-adoption of improved and recommended technologies. Crop production technologies are there but their adoption is low. Increase in the productivity has always remained a concern of scientists. Many technologies have developed by the researchers to improve... more...

  • Biotechnology for Agricultural Breedingby S.K. Mangal

    GeneTech Books 2007; US$ 50.00

    Agricultural biotechnology is an advanced technology that allows plant breeders to make precise genetic changes to impart beneficial traits to the crop plants we rely on for food and fibre. Depending on which genes are transferred, agricultural biotechnology can protect crops from diseases, increase their yield, improve their nutritional content, or... more...

  • The Gene Revolutionby Sakiko Fukuda-Parr

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 61.95

    Whether or not to embrace GM technologies is a fundamental and politically charged question facing humanity in the 21st century, particularly in light of rapidly growing populations and the unknown future impacts of climate change. The Gene Revolution is the first book to bridge the gap between the ?naysayers? and ?cheerleaders? and look at the issues... more...

  • Emerging Consequences of Biotechnologyby Krishna R. Dronamraju

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2008; US$ 113.00

    The commercialization of biotechnology has resulted in an intensive search for new biological resources for the purposes of increasing food productivity, medicinal applications, energy production, and various other applications. Although biotechnology has produced many benefits for humanity, its applications have also resulted in some undesirable consequences... more...

  • Genetically Modified Cropsby Keith T. Atherton

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 184.95

    Biotechnology has a significant impact on both medicine and agriculture. With the introduction of new products to the marketplace, the safety of those products is of paramount importance.
