Abstract

This book provides an up-to-date account of the progress and potential in the genetic improvement of grassland to meet all needs. It encompasses work on a wide range of temperate and tropical grassland species, including grasses, clovers and other forage legumes. It demonstrates how recent advances in molecular techniques are being used to develop breeding objectives and strategies with key-note papers on: objectives and benefits of molecular breeding; linkage/physical mapping and map-based cloning; QTL analysis and trait dissection; genomics, model species, gene discovery and functional analysis; use of molecular markers and bioinformatics for breeding; molecular genetics and breeding of endosymbiont and grass/legume associations; transgenics; genetic diversity, breeding systems and resources; and future directions for research and breeding. This book has broad educational value and will interest plant geneticist and breeders as well as grassland users and policy makers.
