Botanical breeding, Spice cultivation, Horticultural genetics, Plant propagation, Genetic diversity in spices, Spice crop hybridization, Botanical selection, Spice plant breeding programs, Crossbreeding in botany, Spice crop improvement, Reproductive biology of spices, Genetic engineering in spice crops, Plant genetics research, Breeding techniques in botany, Spice plant hybrid vigor, Plant genome analysis, Breeding for flavor profiles, Spice crop adaptation, Botanical gene expression, Selective breeding in spices, Spice crop biotechnology, Pollination in spice plants, Spice crop genetic resources, Molecular breeding in botany

The book offers insight into the origins and domestication of spice crops, providing detailed descriptions of various modes of plant reproduction, as well as specific techniques for emasculation and pollination. Conventional plant breeding methods are explained in great detail, as these concepts are essential for spice breeders to select the appropriate breeding tools. The book also covers tissue culture, genomics-assisted breeding, and the theory and applications of various omics, including metabolomics, genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics.

The book provides comprehensive information on spice breeding, and includes useful references to future directions in spice breeding around the world. It is an excellent resource for new age researchers, faculty members, plant breeders, policy makers, and anyone with an interest in the subject. The book's focus on both theoretical and empirical studies makes it a valuable resource for all readers.
