Wheat Rusts: the Genes of Resistance (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


Although stem rust has been controlled by means of resistant cultivars, leaf and stripe rust continue as problems for many growing areas of the world. "Wheat Rusts: The Genes of Resistance" has been prepared by specialists from one of the leading international labs and illustrates typical resistance phenotypes associated with the majority of known genes for resistance to the three rust diseases of wheat. Relevant details for each gene include chromosome location, aspects of genetics and pathogen variation, the effects of environment on expression, origin, availability in genetic and breeding stocks, and use in agriculture. The book includes an introduction to host-pathogen genetics, methodologies for wheat rust research and breeding for resistance. Specifically prepared to assist scientists in developing countries, the book should appeal to all wheat researchers including geneticists, pathologists, breeders and agricultural scientists.
