Plants, Genes, and Crop BiotechnologyJones and Bartlett Publishers and the American Society of Plant Biologists present the second edition.
"Chrispeels and Sadava have written another winner! The new version of Plants, Genes, and Crop Biotechnology, Second Edition is a MUST for students and researchers who are interested in the impact of plant biology on agriculture and society. Chrispeels and Sadava do an outstanding job of showing how modern agricultural research can help produce enough food in the next 50 years to eliminate hunger and malnutrition and do it in an environmentally sensitive way.
Plants, Genes, and Crop Biotechnology, Second Edition is mandatory reading for everyone who wants to separate myth from fact in the "GMO" controversy. Chrispeels and Sadava have compiled an impressive set of chapters that both educate and inform the reader on the basics of modern plant research and its impact on agriculture. This wonderfully illustrated book provides a conceptual background in plant biology and how modern plant research, including genetic engineering, impacts our daily lives. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in how a griculture has transformed the civilization in which we live. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the second edition of Plants, Genes, and Crop Biotechnology."
