Biotechnology is rapidly emerging as a practical means of improving economically important crops - with research emphasis beginning to shift from herbaceous horticulture to the major agronomic crops. This book provides benchmarks not only for the current state of scientific development of horticultural biotechnology itself, but also for the increasing pace at which new applications from this field are being put to the test for commercial potential. The success of molecular genetic manipulation and tissue culture work in certain model systems, such as the tomato and some ornamental flowers, establishes a useful forum for discussing both the fundamental and applied aspects of plant biotechnology.
