From Anatomy to Wildlife?everything you need to know about temperate-zone tree fruit culture and physiology!

The Concise Encyclopedia of Temperate Tree Fruit is a unique resource that examines all aspects of tree fruit cultivation in the world's temperate zones. This book addresses more than 40 topics, and included with each topic is a list of resources you can use to find further information. Subjects from molecular genetics to fruit color to pest management are addressed comprehensively and in plain language, so you can get the information you need when you need it. Many helpful illustrations and tables make the data even more accessible.

Compiled by some of the most respected names in the field, the Concise Encyclopedia of Temperate Tree Fruit presents the latest research and advances into a wide range of subjects, including fruit maturity, plant hormones, fruit nutritional compositions, and rootstock selection. From the mechanics of plant respiration to the nuances of tree training systems, it's all inside.

Some topics the Concise Encyclopedia of Temperate Tree Fruit examines are: - past and future cultivar development
- innovations in packing equipment
- the benefits of high-density orchards
- mechanisms of cold hardiness
- vital components of site preparation
- carbohydrate distribution and whole-plant efficiency
- advances in sustainable production systems If your work or research includes apples, pears, quinces, peaches, apricots, plums, cherries, or any other temperate-zone tree fruit, the Concise Encyclopedia of Temperate Tree Fruit will be your one-stop reference.
