  • Brings together current issues in haploid production in plants with an historical back drop
  • After lull caused by recalcitrant cultures and a lack of research tools new interest in this area has surged as the potential originally seen many decades ago is now becoming a reality
  • As such, there is great interest in current science and technology applied to the understanding basic biological processes such as embryogenesis and great interest from biotechnology companies wishing to capitalize on the success

The discovery of haploid Datura plants in 1964 initiated great excitement in plant breeding and genetics communities. Recent years have witnessed a resurgence of activities especially in developing protocols, identifying genes and mechanisms and large scale commercial take up.

The identification of controlling genes has driven functional genomic studies which now dovetail with studies in gene expression, metabolism and changes in cell ultra-structure. World wide take up by plant breeders has been no less impressive, and valuable haploid technologies are increasingly patent protected. The intense activity in haploid research has also resulted in unexpected findings with novel applications.

The core of this book is based on the international symposium on "Haploidy in Higher Plants III", (Vienna 2006), which attracted top international experts in the field. Other invited contributions have been included to provide a rounded view of activities. The book covers topics in: Historical Overviews; Basic Biology; Genetics; Biotechnology; Breeding and Novel Applications. It therefore will appeal to undergraduate students,researchers and small and large scale commercial biotechnology companies.
