Genetic resources of salad/garnish vegetables and crop improvement. 14. Genetic resources of tree vegetables and its improvement. 15. Genetic resources of other vegetable crops and its improvement. 16. Varietal wealth of vegetable crops. Varietal wealth of vegetable crops (not listed in table 2). Plant genetic resource and crop improvement base glossary. References. Index. The present book has been written to fulfill the emergence of hue and cry for physical resources in the world which comprise land, water and the biological diversity. Management of landscapes for both production of food and conservation of ecosystem services and wild biodiversity forms the basis for eco-agriculture. In the regime of climate change, accelerated plant genetic resource identification, collection of wild/weedy flora, inventrization, development of open pollinated varieties/hybrids, availability, assessment/refinement to maintain sustainability are focused in a comprehensive manner. In this book 16 different chapters are well designed to cover vegetable genetic resources, importance, utility and ethnobotany along with genetic resources of Solanaceous, Cucurbitaceous, Legume, Brassica, Leafy, Alliums, Root, Tuber, Okra, Aquatic, Rhizome, Salad/Garnish, Tree and other vegetable crops and its improvement. Under varietal wealth of vegetable crops salient characteristic features are given in details to understand the status of breeding base products.  This will prove to be a critical input in strengthening trait specific vegetable genetic resources (PGR), identification of responsible gene for biotic and abiotic stresses, mechanisms of sustainable utilization of landraces in development of superior varieties and hybrids along with ongoing conservation programme at national and international organizations for future posterity. Apart from these, origin, distribution, diversity, species availability, botanical descriptions, horticultural classification, crop improvement and conservation are well highlighted. This book will be a milestone for stakeholders, researchers, breeders, teachers and conservators of India and abroad. It will cater the needs of B.Sc. (Agriculture), B.Sc. (Horticulture), M.Sc. and Ph.D. (Vegetable Science) students. Collection to conservation methodologies have been elaborately dealt with, purposely to acquaint stakeholders to students with all aspects of vegetable genetic resources which is the backbone of vegetable crop improvement program.
