Review: "Maize occupies a unique position in science and agriculture. It has served for nearly 100 years as the pre-eminent model for studying many aspects of cytogenetics, transposons, and plant biology. In addition, corn is a crop plant of enormous economic significance worldwide. No other plant offers the heritage of methods and results in genetics, development, cell biology, physiology, biochemistry, cell and tissue culture, and molecular biology represented by decades of intensive research on maize." "The Maize Handbook brings together a wealth of information and techniques for working with maize and, often, plants in general. A distinguished group of editors has worked closely with the maize research community to compile a landmark collection of contributions. The book is organized into five sections: development and morphology, cell biology, genetics, molecular biology and cell culture." "The Maize Handbook is indispensable to maize researchers. It will also be welcomed by plant biologists generally, who will find much of value to apply to their own research."--Jacket.
