The 18 chapters making up In Vitro Haploid Production in Higher Plants are divided into two sections. Section 1 (eight chapters) covers historical and fundamental aspects of haploidy in crop improvement. Section 2 deals with methods of haploid production, including anther culture, micropore culture, ovary culture, pollination with irradiated pollen, in vitro pollination, and special culture techniques, including polyhaploid production in the Triticeae by sexual hybridization, the influence of ethylene and gelling agents on anther culture, conditional lethal markers, and methods of chromosome doubling.

Industry Reviews

`It should be an invaluable reference for researchers interested in theoretical and practical aspects of haploidy in higher plants. Plant cytogeneticists, geneticists, plant brreeders, and biotechnologists will find this book very useful.'
Journal of Heredity (March 1999)
