//T">uring the past decade plant breed-I-^ing has transformed from pure agronomic genetics to an interdisciplinary research field. Sometimes it is not easy to understand your colleagues' agronomic jargon especially when your background is in biochemistry and your knowledge about the possible life forms on the nearby star system is more extensive than how to breed sunflowers. I was lucky enough to have preliminary access to the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Plant Breeding and Related Subjects and it proved to be extremely helpful to me. Professor Schlegel has successfully completed the difficult task of gathering in a single volume all practical terms in the vast field of plant breeding. I am sure this book will become an important reference source for students and researchers engaged in plant breeding work."

Dr. Ivelin Y. Pantchev

Assistant Professor, Department of Biochemistry, Faculty of Biology, Sofia University, Bulgaria his is a massive effort to collate X terms and definitions of direct and indirect relevance to plant breeding and plant biotechnology. It brings together under one roof a diversity of terminology, ranging from the agricultural through breeding, botany, biochemistry, genetics, and cytology to molecular biology. The volume also includes a substantial compendium of tables and illustrative figures, which certainly adds value and will distinguish it from its competitors."
