Summary

For all undergraduate courses in plant propagation at the two-year and four-year colleges and universities.

 

The world standard for plant propagation and horticulture for over 50 years, Hartmann and Kester’s Plant Propagation continues to be the field’s most complete, up-to-date text on plant propagation. It now contains color figures throughout, promoting learning and making it an even more useful working text and reference. It also contains extensive updates reflecting the latest commercial techniques and understanding of propagation biology. Like previous editions, it is organized into paired chapters on principles and practices, so it can easily be adapted for teaching courses that cover only practical topics, and for courses that also cover conceptual issues.

Author Biography

Fred T. Davies, Jr., is a Regents Professor emeritus of Horticultural Sciences and Senior Borlaug Fellow in Horticulture at Texas A&M University. Early in his career, he got hooked on the biology of cutting propagation, presenting propagation research as a graduate student at his first International Plant Propagators’ Society (IPPS) meeting in 1975. He is a Past President of the IPPS-SR and the American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) (2011). He is IPPS-SR Editor, an IPPS Fellow, ASHS Fellow, Meadows Awardee, and received the IPPS International Award of Honor (2015). Davies has worked internationally at research institutes and taught at universities as a Guggenheim Fellow (1999), and Senior Fulbright Fellow to Mexico (1993), Peru (2000), and Indonesia (2012). In 2014, he was a Jefferson Science Fellow/Senior Science Advisor at USAID–U.S. Agency for International Development–helping with the Feed-the-Future program. He continues to work internationally in food security and in promoting entrepreneurial and career opportunities in horticulture. 

 

Robert L. Geneve is a Professor in the Department of Horticulture at the University of Kentucky. He teaches courses in plant propagation, seed biology, and plant identification. He has co-authored over 100 scientific and technical articles in seed biology, cutting propagation, and tissue culture. He is also the co-editor of the book Biotechnology of Ornamental Plants and author of A Book of Blue Flowers. He is a Past President for the International Plant Propagators’ Society, Eastern Region, and a past Delegate on the International Board of Directors. He has served as the Editor for the international horticulture journal, Scientia Horticulturae, from 2001 to 2008 and is currently on the editorial boards of the Propagation of Ornamental Plants and the Journal of Seed Technology. He is the recipient of the University of Kentucky George E. Mitchell Jr. Award for Outstanding Faculty Service to Graduate Students (2006), and is a Fellow of the American Society for Horticultural Science (2005), as well as a Fellow (2003) and Award of Merit recipient (2014) for the International Plant Propagators’ Society, Eastern Region.
