It links the latest advances in molecular genetics with the science and history of plan domestication, the evolution of plant breeding, and the implications of this new knowledge for both the agriculture of today and the future." "The book is primarily aimed at geneticists, molecular biologists, bio-technologists, and plant breeders who require a detailed and up-to-date account of modern crop genetics and genomic research and its significance for agriculture. However, the accessible style will appeal to a wider readership of agronomists, archaeologists, and even historians, who wish to explore the many interactions that have shaped the often crucial relationships between plants and human societies."--Jacket." ;
