Disease and Insect Resistance in Plants

Dhan Pal Singh (Author) Arti Singh (Author)
Synopsis The book disease and Insect Resistance in Plants covers in detail the principles and practices of conventional plant breeding as well as newer and recent biotechnological tools such as marker-assisted selection and transgenic crops. The book is meant as an advanced text and it is presumed that readers will have basic knowledge of plant pathogens, insect-pests and their genetics. The book can also be used as a reference book by plant pathologists, entomologists and geneticists engaged in developing germplasm with resistance to biotic stresses. An attempt is made to draw specific examples from a wide range of crop plants and their harmful parasites. An extensive reference list provides access to the original literature.
