Weedy and Invasive Plant Genomics

C. Neal Stewart, Jr. 
Wiley-Blackwell  August 2009  



Hardcover  272 pp  ISBN 9780813822884      £145.00
Weedy and Invasive Plant Genomics offers a comprehensive, up-to-date reference on genetic and genomics research in weedy and invasive plants. Forward-looking in its approach, the work also assesses the areas of future research necessary to defeat these agricultural pests. This research-based, scholarly work engenders a further understanding of weeds and invasive plants, opening avenues for developing more effective methods of managing them. This volume will be a necessary reference for weed scientists, agrochemical industry researchers, conservation geneticist, and plant biologists.
