This work encompasses aspects of plant innovation and related law in the US and overseas providing a globalperspective. Full treatment is given to the legal and technological framework; intellectual property regimes of importance in plant breeding; formal grants of rights under plant variety protection schemes; plant and utility patent regimes and trade mark regimes.
