Each chapter covers one particular species (or sometimes group of closely related species) and the transgenic versions developed for that particular species.
Offers a complete description of the successfully developed transgenic plants for around 100 commercially relevant crops from fruits and vegetables to grains, industrial crops and forest tree species
Covers the transgenic techniques used in the molecular tailoring of traits relevant from an agricultural, medicinal and environmental point of view
Explores future developments, from desired traits to expected new technologies
Examines risks and concerns around the use of GM crops
Discusses public perception, industrial perspectives and political and economic consequences
Contributions from over 300 leading scientists from around the world
Provides a valuable and inclusive reference for students, researchers, scientists and industry professionals, studying and working on transgenic plants.
