Reproductive biology is the basis of species improvement and a thorough understanding of this is needed for plant improvement, whether by conventional or biotechnological methods. This book presents an up to date and comprehensive description of reproduction in lower plants, gymnosperms and higher plants; It covers general plant biology, pollination, pollen-pistil interaction, post-fertilization changes, and seed dormancy.
This book aims to set the record straight by placing the wealth of data that have been collected on plants into the unifying framework of game theory.
This allows a test of the theory of natural selection in some cases, while in other cases highlighting the need from additional data collection and theoretical development. It is the author’s hope that many students will take on this challenge and help the study of the reproductive biology of plants to develop as a mature, predictive science.
