about

A multi-faceted reference work, theEncyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciencesaddresses the core knowledge, theories, and techniques employed by plant scientists, while also concentrating on applications of these in research and in industry. Plants influence all our lives as sources of sustenance, fuel and building materials. TheEncyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciencesis a comprehensive yet succinct publication that covers the application of current advances in the biological sciences, through which scientists can now better produce sustainable, safe food, feed and food ingredients, and renewable raw materials for industry and society. This three-volume set also covers the concerns over continuing advances in the application of knowledge in the areas of ecology and plant pathology, genetics, physiology, biochemistry and biotechnology, as well as the ethical issues involved in the use of the powerful techniques available to modern plant science. An invaluable reference, theEncyclopedia of Applied Plant Scienceswill be an indispensable addition to the library of anyone involved in the study of plant sciences. TheEncyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciencesis available online on ScienceDirect. The print edition price for this reference work does not include online access.
