From the reviews:

"This book was written for me and all who research and believe that crop design for the 21st Century in a changing and more unpredictable climate requires far greater prioritization be given to achieving a better understanding of root biology and a capability to manipulate plant genomes to improve their function. An impressive selection of very well-regarded researchers world-wide have contributed to this book to assemble what I believe is the most up-to-date and comprehensive report of the current knowledge on crop root genetics." (Mike W. Humphreys, Experimental Agriculture, Vol. 47 (4), 2011)
