Details

Cotton breeders have long recognized the importance of alien germplasm from the Malvaceae family as sources of genes for crop improvement. An understanding of the biological nature of the incompatibility systems that prevent hybridization and/or seed development is necessary for the successful hybridization and introgression between cotton and other Malvaceae species. This new book reviews the reasons for reproductive isolation between cotton and its wild or cultivated Malvaceae relatives. (Imprint: Nova)
