Horticultural Plant Breeding is a complete and comprehensive resource on the development of new cultivars or clones of horticultural crops. It covers the basic theories that underpin plant breeding and applies Mendelian, quantitative and population inheritance in smaller populations where the individual has high value. Specific traditional breeding methods are also covered, with an emphasis on how these methods are adapted for horticultural species. In addition, the integration of biotechnologies with traditional breeding methodologies are included, with an emphasis on specific applications for fruits, vegetables and ornamental species. It is an ideal resource for professionals, academics, and undergraduate and graduate students. Sections cover historical perspectives and context, genetics as a critical foundation of plant breeding, and treatments of the various components of breeding programs, such as germplasm, breeding objectives, population engineering, mating systems, artificial selection systems, post-breeding activities, established breeding methods applicable to inbreeding and outcrossing situations, and examples of A to Z breeding in a broad spectrum of horticultural crop species.
