Raoul A. Robinson ISBN 0-9731816-2-1
This guide is intended for amateur plant breeders, usually members of a plant breeding club, who need a quick reference to terms that they may encounter in the course of conversation or reading. For readers who enjoy browsing, the guide should also be a source of information for anyone wanting to get away from the modern prejudices that favour single-genes, genetic engineering, and crop protection chemicals. It is also a guide for organic farmers, and for those interested in sustainable agriculture, pure food, and a healthy lifestyle.
Although hard copy of this book is easily printed, the electronic version is recommended for its links. Clicking on any link will take you immediately to its main reference, and the 'back' button will take you back to your original reading. Hypertext makes browsing both easy and interesting.
