Main Description

There is currently no single up-to-date volume on the pineapple and this book fills that gap.The contents include: history, distribution and world production; botany; breeding, genetic engineering, selection and cultivars; crop environment, temperature, water and light; propagation; cultural systems; flowering and fruit development; and pests, disease and weeds. The book will be of interest to those working in horticulture and tropical fruit growers.

Paull Robert E. Paull Professor Paull graduated from the University of Sydney with a BS in Agronomy, was involved in cotton production research before going to the University of California in Berkeley for a PhD in plant physiology. He returned to Australia and carried out research on chilling injury of tropical plants before his appointment to the University of Hawaii to teach and do research on postharvest physiology and handling. He teaches plant physiology and provides guest lectures on postharvest physiology and handling in applied courses. His research focuses on the adaptation and application of technology to the improvement of postharvest handling in a integrated and systematic way. This research has lead to more than hundred peer-reviewed publication, over eighty extension type articles and is co author on three books and co-edited five including The Encyclopedia of Fruits and Nuts published by CABI with Dr. Jules Janick.
