1. “Plants With Seeds” by Roger Prior and Whitney Lesiuk

“Plants With Seeds” Book Review: This book gives a piece of in-depth information about the transport system and reproductive strategies of plants, which are the main topics for making distinctions among the spermopsida. This book also then focuses on gymnosperms and angiosperms. Finally, it concludes with an ecological consideration of these plants. This book contains a Taxonomic Guide and Glossary with hundreds of explained terms. This book contains original artwork and labeled diagrams and many questions such as short answers and multiple choices to help the students. This book also includes sets of written answer questions to help the students to clear out their concepts.

2. “A Textbook of Botany: Diversity and Systematics of Seed Plants” by V Singh and P C Pande
3. “Genetic Diversity in Seed Orchards” by Madhan Shankar

“Genetic Diversity in Seed Orchards” Book Review: This book explores the diversity status in three tropical tree species namely Gmelina arborea, Eucalyptus tereticornis, and hybrids of Acacia. This book can be useful for many Ph.D. researchers, teachers, and professors who are interested in this field. This book tells us how all three species are economically important and requires a thorough understanding of their existing diversity status for further breeding programs. The chapters include an elaborate review, methods of assessment, and the results that we have obtained.

4. “Saving the Seed: Genetic diversity and European agriculture (Natural Resource Management Set Book 9)” by Renee Vellve

“Saving the Seed: Genetic diversity and European agriculture (Natural Resource Management Set Book 9)” Book Review: This book gives in-depth information about the natural resource management in genetic and European agriculture of saving seeds. This book can be useful for many Ph.D. researchers, teachers, and professors who are interested in this field. This book tells us how genetic diversity is essential to the security of agriculture. It tells us how genetic diversity and modern agriculture have put an impact on the agricultural field. This book tells us how modern agriculture has replaced diversity with uniformity, and security with vulnerability. This book contains the most up-to-date information available on genetic resources in Europe and on those working to save them.

5. “Annual Plant Reviews: Seed Development, Dormancy and Germination” by Kent Bradford and Hiro Nonogaki

“Annual Plant Reviews: Seed Development, Dormancy and Germination” Book Review: This book gives in-depth information about the formation, dispersal and germination of seeds which are crucial stages in the life cycles of gymnosperm and angiosperm plants. This book can be useful for many Ph.D. researchers, teachers, and professors who are interested in this field. The book is directed at plant developmental biologists, geneticists, plant breeders, seed biologists, and graduate students. This book explains the unique properties of seeds, particularly their tolerance to desiccation, their mobility, and their ability to schedule their germination. This book provides an in-depth overview of seed biology from the developmental and regulatory point of view involved in the transition from a developing seed into germination and seedling growth. This book explains the complexity of the environmental, physiological, molecular, and genetic interactions which occur due to the life cycle of seeds. This book also points out challenges and remaining questions for future research.

6. “Flowering Plants. Dicotyledons: Celastrales, Oxalidales, Rosales, Cornales, Ericales (The Families and Genera of Vascular Plants)” by Klaus Kubitzki
7. “Tropical Forest Seed (Tropical Forestry)” by Lars H Schmidt
8. “Vascular Plants and Paleobotany (Research Progress in Botany)” by Philip Stewart and Sabine Globig

advertisement
“Vascular Plants and Paleobotany (Research Progress in Botany)” Book Review: This book includes a number of Open Access chapters. This book can be useful for many Ph.D. researchers, teachers, and professors who are interested in this field. This book provides an important collection of new research on many aspects of the evolutionary patterns of gymnosperms, angiosperms, and pteridophytes. This book includes a complete chloroplast genome sequence study. It also describes a method that makes the systemic silencing of target genes in the Ceratopteris gametophyte. This book shows how herbicide treatments reduce fern densities and create the establishment of regeneration. This book also gives a detailed analysis of the EST dataset which reveals genes potentially unique to gymnosperms.

9. “Saving Seed: The Economics of Conserving Crop Genetic Resources Ex Situ in the Future Harvest Centres of CGIAR (Cabi)” by B Koo and P G Pardey

“Saving Seed: The Economics of Conserving Crop Genetic Resources Ex Situ in the Future Harvest Centres of CGIAR (Cabi)” Book Review: This book discusses the conservation of genetic resources which is really important for the maintenance of biodiversity and to manage the growing population. This book can be useful for many Ph.D. researchers, teachers, and professors who are interested in this field. Since the 1970s, the 11 genebanks maintained by the centers of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR) have become pivotal to the global conservation effort. However, key policy and management issues – usually with economic dimensions – have largely been overlooked. This book provides detailed information on the economic studies, led by IFPRI, in collaboration with five CGIAR centers. This book reports on these studies and discusses the wider implications.
