A multi-faceted reference work, the "Encyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciences" addresses the core knowledge, theories, and techniques employed by plant scientists, while also concentrating on applications of these in research and in industry.

Review:

"The editors have done a fine job of keeping the language scientific enough to make this valuable for working scientists, providing abundant data, digrams of genes important in applied plant biology, and technical measurements, while keeping the text clear and simple...This is a very valuable work and libraries, especially at universities, should strongly consider its purchase." -Douglas Darnowski for PLANT SCIENCE BULLETIN, 2005 "This resource is timely as the interest and controversy heats up surrounding plant genetics by presenting research and information in the best scholarly tradition. The editors of this ambitious work have put together a well thought-out resource that will serve researches and students for a long time. This reference is suitable for academic collections supporting horticultural, agricultural and plant science programs." - E-STREAMS, June 2004 "The resource consists of extensive overview articles as well as shorter articles, more typical of standard encyclopaedic resources...a well thought-out resource that will serve researchers and students for long time." -Peggy Dominy, Information Services Librarian, Drexel University Hagerty Library "Very Specialized, this encyclopedia compiles information on 'plants and how we make use of them', and includes all aspects of plant growth and development as well as biotechnology, genetic engineering, ethics and related topics...Recommended." -M.S. Muskiewicz, University of Massachusetts at Lowell "...there is no doubt that this book is a very useful source of information for students and teachers alike. This is a well-edited multi-authored book and represents a valuable source of information on plant physiology and biotechnology at the beginning of the 21st century." -ACTA PHYSIOLOGIAE PLANTARUM, 2004 "Very specialized. Articles...provide extended detailed treatment...Recommended." -CHOICE (MAY 2004)
