Seed Identification Manual is an attempt to meet the long-standing need for a reference work dealing exclusively with seed identification. The authors of this manual have brought together, for direct observation and study on a comparative basis, pictures and practical descriptions of a large and representative a collection of seeds. In accord with the visual principal, the textual part of the manual is ample illustrated with 288 figures in the form of line drawings and diagrams, and the generic descriptions are accompanied by reference to the corresponding plates. Lavishly illustrated the pictorial part of the manual, containing 824 photographic plates, showing the seeds of more than 600 plant species, is divided into three habitat classification of Framlands, Wetlands and Woodlands from various parts of the United States. The immediate aim of this manual is to help agriculturists, foresters, wildlife biologists, chemical manufacturers, agricultural experiment stations, seed testing laboratories, and others interested in the land-use programs to identify the seeds in their particular ecological fields of interest. Bearing in mind the different backgrounds of the probable readers of this manual in respect to scientific preparations and experiences, the authors have thought it best to keep the descriptions nontechnical, so far as was feasible, and thus adapt the material to a broad range of interests and skills.

The discipline of plant breeding has undergone transformation due to the assimilation of the rapid developments in molecular biology. The existing books on plant breeding deal mainly with the classical approaches, while specialized books on molecular approaches usually lack discussion of the classical methods. The book Plant Breeding for 21st Century attempts to present the complete picture of plant breeding ranging from the classical to the molecular approaches applied to crop improvement. The book is divided into four sections: Classical Plant Breeding, Transgenic technology, Molecular Markers, and Miscellaneous. The first section deals with the classical plant breeding and is divided into eight chapters. The second section has four chapters and describes transgenic technology. The third section discusses various aspects of molecular markers and is spread over three chapters. The final section has a single chapter dealing with variety release, seed multiplication and intellectual property rights. This book is designed primarily for graduate students, viz., B.Sc. agriculture and B.Sc. science students with botany as one of the subjects, who would get their first exposure to plant breeding. It would also be useful for the post-graduate students, especially in botany, and to teachers of the subject. The book is written in simple and easy to understand language. Illustrations and photographs have been provided wherever they were expected to facilitate comprehension of the subject under discussion.
