Drought phenotyping in crops: from theory to practice (2014)

Back to: Drought phenotyping in crops homepage | Back to: Research publications | Back to: Books 2011

 Republication of selected chapters in Frontiers in Plant Physiology

At GCP's 2011 General Research Meeting in Hyderabad, India, group discussions on communications included the possibility of republishing the 2011 GCP book Drought phenotyping in crops: from theory to practice with an open-source online publisher, Frontiers. Republishing this work gave contributing authors an opportunity to update their findings, and to bring state-of-the-art research in phenotyping to the public once more, with each author moving at their own pace. Not all chapters from the original book have been republished in Frontiers in Plant Physiology, but those that were republished were compiled into a Frontiers e-book.

Users can discover phenotyping research beyond new Frontiers by downloading the entire book or each republished chapter below...
