From the reviews:
"The book shapes the current bigger picture of the maize plant and puts its biology back into the minds of maize geneticists and breeders. ... High-quality figures, good explanatory colour diagrams and informative tables support the excellent, technically flawless text. The book is delightful to read ... which is supplemented with a large selection of literature references. ... very useful for teachers, students and non-specialists, in addition to maize researchers and breeders as well. ... it is an excellent book, produced at the right time." (Ralf G. Kynast, Annals of Botany, Vol. 109 (7), June, 2012)
