Breeding crops with resistance to diseases and pests [Monograph]
Niks, R.E. \ Parlevliet, J.E. \ Lindhout, P. \ Bai, Y. \ cop. 2011
resistance breeding - plant breeding - disease resistance - pest resistance - plant-microbe interactions - defence mechanisms - textbooks

Up-to-date textbook targeted towards students in plant sciences. The book describesthe most basic elements in plant pathogen interactions and defence strategies in plants. The scientific background is explained as far as it is relevant for breeders to make sensible choices in designing and running their breeding work

Used in course: PBR-30306 Breeding for Quality and Resistance; PBR-32802 Breeding for Resistance (DL)
Organic crop breeding [Monograph]
Lammerts van Bueren, E.T. \ Myers, J.R. \ cop. 2012
plant breeding - organic farming - crop quality - disease resistance - pest resistance - Organic farming - Plant breeding

This book provides readers with a thorough review of the latest efforts by crop breeders and geneticists to develop improved varieties for organic production. The book opens with chapters looking at breeding efforts that focus on specific valuable traits such as quality, pest and disease resistance as well as the impacts improved breeding efforts can have on organic production. The second part of the book is a series of crop specific case studies that look at breeding efforts currently underway from around the world in crops ranging from carrots to corn. Organic Crop Breeding includes chapters from leading researchers in the field.

Used in course: PBR-90303 Organic Plant Breeding and Seed Production
Plant biotechnology : the genetic manipulation of plants [Monograph] - 2nd ed
Slater, A. \ Scott, N.W. \ Fowler, M.R. \ 2008
transgenic plants - genomes - gene expression - genetic transformation - tissue culture - genetic engineering - disease resistance - pest resistance - genetic vectors - herbicide resistance - techniques

This book presents a balanced exploration of the technology behind genetic manipulation, and the application of this technology to the growth and cultivation of plants. The book describes the techniques underpinning genetic manipulation and thereby makes use of case studies to illustrate how this influential tool is used in practice.

Used in course: GEN-20806 Plant Biotechnology; PBR-23803 Plant Biotechnology (DL)
Principles of plant genetics and breeding [Monograph] - 2nd ed
Acquaah, G. \ 2012
plant breeding - plant genetics - molecular breeding - textbooks - Plant breeding - Plant genetics

Provides a comprehensive presentation of both classical and molecular plant breeding tools. Topics such as biotechnology in plant breeding, intellectual property, risks, emerging concepts (decentralized breeding, organic breeding), and more are covered in this new edition. the final chapters provide a useful reference on breeding the largest and most common crops.

Used in course: PBR-30806 Design of Plant Breeding Programmes; PBR-21803 Plant Breeding: Basic Concepts and their Applications; PBR-22303 Principles of Plant Breeding; PBR-22803 Principles of Plant Breeding (DL)
