Summary

Plants, Genes, and Crop Biotechnology, Second Edition is ideally suited for a beginning course in a department of crop sciences to show how biotechnology is becoming part of agriculture and for an innovative course in plant biology where the instructor wants to deal with the societal issues that flow from agriculture (environmental concerns, GM crops, food sufficiency, etc). The types of courses for which this book is suitable go by many names because it is an interdisciplinary book. The course would typically be one quarter, semester or trimester and can be taught at any time during the year. Such courses can be found at 2-year and at 4-year institutions. At highly selective universities, this would be a first-or second-year course but at less selective universities it could come later in the curriculum. bull; bull;Biology of Plant Food Systems and the Environment bull;Advanced Crop Production bull;Plants, Genes, and Agriculture bull;Environmental, Food, and Society
