This textbook, designed for introductory plant breeding courses, is tailored to fit within a single semester's curriculum. Its scope is deliberately limited to serve as a practical reference for post-graduate students and horticultural plant breeders. With a clear and concise presentation style, the book aims to provide accurate and accessible information to its target audience.
