Seed Technology and its Biological Basis
Michael BlackISBN: 9781841270432;
Seed production – whether for human or animal food, for industrial use or for crops – is heavily dependent on the unique biology of seeds. In the first two instances, we are drawing on the seed constituents – the reserves of carbohydrates, protein and triacylglycerol – while in the last we are reliant on the seeds? viability, vigour and capacity for germination. This volume provides a broad, up–to–date coverage of seed technology and its underlying biology in the light of recent advances in plant molecular biology. Possibilities for biotechnological exploitation are highlighted throughout.
