Carbohydrate reserves constitute the major part of edible portion of the plants. Latest researches in major crops like wheat, rice, maize, barley, potato, sugarcane, sugarbeet, Jerusalem artichoke, chicory and carbohydrates in trees have been included in this book. The book will be of great value to the basic plant biochemists, molecular biologists, biotechnologists, and genetic crop engineers and to the agricultural scientists working in different disciplines related to crop productivity. This compilation may act as a medium to initiate discussions among these scientists leading to new researches in the area of crop productivity and reserve carbohydrate metabolism.
...this monograph will be useful to scientists in the field and as a reference book of information for those that want to know more about carbohydrate reserves in plants. The information is current and will be a useful reference book for many years.
...for those who have a general involvement or interest in plant carbohydrate research the book would complement what currently exists on their shelves.
