The physiology of flower bulbs. A comprehensive treatise on the physiology and utilization of ornamental flowering bulbous and tuberous plants


, : The physiology of flower bulbs. A comprehensive treatise on the physiology and utilization of ornamental flowering bulbous and tuberous plants. The physiology of flower bulbs A comprehensive treatise on the physiology and utilization of ornamental flowering bulbous and tuberous plants: xii + 811 pp.

Written by over 30 scientists from all over the world, this book is an extensive review of research on 61 ornamental geophyte genera. It is divided into 3 sections: general aspects, genera and perspectives. The first section includes chapters on bulb botany, world production and utilization, growth and development, production systems, physiology and biochemistry, diseases, insect pests, physiological disorders, breeding and genetics, and the economics of production and forcing.
