Biotechnology of Fruit and Nut Crops is a comprehensive reference work on the current status of biotechnology of the major temperate, subtropical and tropical fruit and nut crop species of the world. This second edition includes persimmon, pomegranate and loquat for the first time and color illustrations of the crop species and their wild relatives. Family by family, it details well-established techniques such as protoplast culture, in vitro mutagenesis and ploidy manipulation, but also newer approaches such as genomics, genetic transformation and marker-assisted selection.
