Series: title


Whereas the preceding volume in the series focused mainly on monocotyledonous crop plants, this one concentrates on the dicotyledons including legumes, fruit plants in the species Prunus, grapes, oranges, olive, and pistachio. A.K. Sharma and A. Sharma (both affiliated with the botany department, U. of Calcutta) introduce 20 articles by international contributors treating solutions of problems of phylogeny, evolution, and biodiversity in several taxonomic groups. They present data from chromosomal, molecular marker, and related studies on the relationships between cultivated and wild species of such important food plants as chickpea, and their stresses and diseases. Illustrations (some in color) include plant distribution maps and genetic sequences. The volume lacks a subject index. Distributed in the US by Enfield.
