For a number of years, biotechnology has held out the prospect for major advances in agricultural production, but only recently have the results of this new revolution started to reach application in the field. The potential for further rapid developments is, however, immense. The aim of this book series is to review advances and current knowledge in key areas of biotechnology as applied to crop and animal production, forestry and food science. Some titles focus on individual crop species, others on specific goals such as plant protection or animal health, with yet others addressing particular methodologies such as tissue culture, transformation or immunoassay. In some cases, relevant molecular and cell biology and genetics are also covered. Issues of relevance to both industrialized and developing countries are addressed and social, economic and legal implications are also considered. Most titles are written for research workers in the biological sciences and agriculture, but some are also useful as textbooks for senior-level students in these disciplines.
