CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Involvement of ABA and GAs in the regulation of dormancy in developing sorghum seeds.

The participation of the hormone abscisic acid (ABA) in the control of dormancy of developing seeds is well documented for a number of species. It has recently been demonstrated that the degree of dormancy of developing sorghum seeds also depends on the extent to which ABA action is counterbalanced ...

Cover for Molecular genetic analysis of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Arabidopsis</i> seed quality.

Improvement of seed quality may greatly benefit from the characterization of genes involved in seed development and seed germination. To study the effect of genes on seed quality, a comparison was made among genetically different lines. Ideally, the genetic difference should be known at the DNA...

Cover for Molecular genetic analysis of bud dormancy-related traits in <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Populus</i>.

Species and hybrids of Populus are excellent models for studying traits related to bud dormancy. Considerable progress has been made towards understanding the genetic controls on dormancy-related traits. Quantitative genetic analysis has demonstrated moderate to high heritabilities for these...

Cover for Genetic base-broadening in the West Indies sugar cane breeding programme by the incorporation of wild species.

Modern sugarcane varieties are complex interspecific hybrids and are highly polyploid with a degree of aneuploidy. Although progress was initially good, by the 1960s it was realized that the exceedingly narrow genetic base of the existing clones was beginning to impede further progress. The need...
