Weedy and Invasive Plant Genomics
C. Neal Stewart, Jr.
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.
