view than its personal right men should still fecundate each one blossom." ANDREW KNIGHT Philosophical Transactions, 1799 Pollination mechanisms and copy have a decisive bearing upon rational systems in plant breeding and crop construction. This ebook intends to provide' lower than one disguise an built-in botanical, genetical and breeding-methodologi cal remedy of the reproductive biology of spermatophytes often angiosperms; it truly is in response to a sophisticated topical direction in plant breeding taught on the Hebrew collage of Jerusa lem. we have now attempted to provide a assurance that is concise, yet as finished as attainable, of the pollination mechanism and modes of replica of upper crops, and to demonstrate subject matters, at any time when achievable, by means of examples from cultivated vegetation. however, a few suitable courses can have escaped our recognition or is probably not pointed out as a result of a variety of obstacles. The publication is equipped into 3 elements. the 1st half begins with an assessment of the importance of different pollination mechanisms for plant breeding and crop produc tion, describes modes of copy in better vegetation and discusses ecology and dynamics of pollination. the second one half is dedicated to vegetation propagated by means of self pollination and describes particular breeding systems for such vegetation. The 3rd half information sexual replica in better vegetation and handles 3 mechanisms interested by the prevention of self pollination and their usage in plant breeding: intercourse expres sion, incompatibility, and male sterility.
