Managing Plant Genetic Diversity
This book contains edited and revised papers from a conference on "Science and Technology for Managing Plant Genetic Diversity in the 21st Century" held in Malaysia in June 2000, organized by the International Plant Genetic Resources Institute (IPGRI). It includes keynote papers and some 40 additional ones, covering 10 themes. The major scientific challenges to developing a global vision for the next century are identified and key research objectives are also discussed.
"The volume provides an authoritative, substantive account of the management of plant genetic diversity from a largely 'westernized' agrodevelopment perspective."- Heredity
"In short, this is a book that any stakeholder in plant genetic resources will appreciate consulting, reflecting upon, and coming back to."- Crop Science
"In sum, the volume serves as a top-notch reference text on the science and technology of managing plant genetic resources; useful for scholars, practitioners and teachers of both graduate and senior-level undergraduate classes."- Biological Agriculture and Horticulture
"Of course, everybody in the field of PGR management will have the book. It should be available in every Department of Conservation Biology, and I can highly recommend it as an excellent source on information on the field of PGR management for botanists in general."- Plant Systematics and Evolution
