Book on Gene Flow Between Crops and Wild Relatives

February 19, 2010

Gene Flow between Crops and Their Wild Relatives by Meike S. Andersson and M. Carmen de Vicente discusses the scientific basis for assessing the likelihood of gene flow between 20 crops and their wild relatives. For each crop that includes barley, corn, cotton, cowpea, wheat, pearl millet and rice, a full-color world map shows the modeled distributions of crops and wild relatives. The book is published by the John Hopkins University Press.
