Summary: Jones and Bartlett and the American Society of Plant Biologists have teamed up for the second edition of Plants Biotechnology, Genetics and Agriculture, Second Edition. This book integrates many fields to help students understand the complexity of the basic science that underlies crop and food production. It is truly an interdisciplinary text that brings together aspects of genetics and plant breeding, molecular biology and genetic engineering, plant develo morepment and reproduction, soils and plant nutrition, agro-ecology and the sustainability of agricultural practices, population increases and the difficulty of eradicating hunger, pest control practices and their environmental consequences, the role of biotechnology in modern crop production. The orientation is not strictly towards American or even "Western" agriculture as many examples are taken from the agricultural problems in developing countries. Examples of crop genetic engineering are used throughout the book and not confined to one chapter. The book is ideally suited for a beginning course in a Department of crop sciences to show how biotechnology (genetic engineering of crops) is becoming part of agriculture and for an innovative course in plant biology where the instructor wants to deal with the societal issues that flow from agriculture (environmental concerns, GM crops, food sufficiency, etc). less
