MEDIA REVIEWS
'... the principal strengths of the volume are in its encyclopedic treatment ...' Chemistry & Industry
'... useful information for research and extension workers, plant breeders and teachers and students as well as interested fruit growers.' Journal of Agricultural Science
'... an outstanding work ... clearly written, up-to-date, and covers an enormous amount of material.' Chronica Horticulturae
'... this work represents a monumental achievement, which is likely to become a standard work in top fruit. ... comprehensive ... This volume fills the gap for a European textbook on this subject and includes molecular markers and biotechnology of apple and pear plus the latest references up to and including 2001. It will certainly serve as a good basis for lectures on fruit tree physiology for both students and lecturers alike.' European Journal of Horticultural Science
"John E. Jackson has compiled an outstanding work integrating apple and pear biology and horticulture. It is clearly written, up-to-date, and covers an enormous amount of material. ...it will surely become a handbook and first reference for all workers in pome fruits." Chronica Horticulturae
"The most comprehensive work available on the subject of apple and pear biology and cultivation. Highly recommended for academic and research libraries supporting agriculture, horticulture, or food science programs." E-STREAMS
