Edwin George’s books have become the standard works on in vitro plant propagation. This work will surely maintain that pre-eminence.
For this, the third edition of his classic, extra specialists have been brought on board to cover the hugely expanded number of topics in the subject area.
The volumes, of course, still contain a wealth of information for researchers and companies working in related areas; particularly plant breeding, genetic engineering, phytopathology, production of secondary metabolites and conservation.
However, scientific knowledge has expanded rapidly since the second edition and it would now be a daunting task for a single author to cover all aspects adequately.
Therefore, in this third edition, topics are being covered by a number of specialists.
Notwithstanding, this edition still maintains the integration that was characteristic of the previous editions.
The first volume of the new edition highlights the scientific background of in vitro propagation, while the second volume covers the practice of micropropagation and describes its various applications.
