This book gives a complete picture of the canola crop including its history, botany, genetics, distribution, breeding and biotechnology, production, processing, composition, nutritional properties and utilization of the seed, oil and meal, as well as an economic profile. While the main focus in this book is on canola of Canadian origin, its cousin crop oilseed rape will also be discussed to a lesser extent. The work provides up-to-date information on the crop and highlights areas where research and development is either needed or is in process.

- Provides extensive information on the canola plant, including breeding, genetic engineering for trait development, and seed morphology and composition- Editors and contributors are global leaders in canola research and application- Offers a comprehensive overview of canola oil and meal composition, nutrition, and utilization

Daun, James K.
Before his retirement in 2006, Jim Daun was Section Head, Oilseeds and Pulses, Canadian Grain Commission, Grain Research Laboratory, where he published over 200 research papers in the area of the quality of Canadian grains and oilseeds. He obtained his Ph.D. in 1975 at the University of Manitoba, Department of Plant ­Science, where he worked on the chemistry of rapeseed and canola. Daun is a long-time AOCS member and was AOCS president in 1997. He has been made an AOCS Fellow and has received the ADM award, the H. Dutton award, and the Bailey award. Daun was named an Eminent Scientist by the International Rapeseed Research Association (G.C.I.R.C.) in 2006. He also chaired the Canadian Advisory Committees for ISO/TC34/SC2 (oilseeds) and SC11 (fats and oils) and was active for most of his career on the Canadian committees recommending registration of new oilseed varieties. In 2002, Daun was awarded the Queen's Jubilee medal for his work in standards development. Since retirement, Daun has continued a small consulting business, AgriAnalytical Consulting.
