BeschreibungThis book has been written to provide a unique, much-needed resource of information on the biology and technology of flower seeds. The floral industry represents a significant proportion of agricultural income in several developed countries, particularly the U.S., Netherlands, and Japan. The diversity of flower seeds, as well as their form, function and biology, has hitherto daunted the production of a comprehensive treatment of the topic. However, in this volume, international authorities from academia and industry have been sought together to provide a comprehensive reference resource for both practitioners and students of seed science and technology and of ornamental horticulture.
