Description

For all undergraduate courses in plant propagation at the two-year and four-year colleges and universities.

 

The world standard for plant propagation and horticulture for over 50 years, Hartmann and Kester’s Plant Propagation continues to be the field’s most complete, up-to-date text on plant propagation. It now contains color figures throughout, promoting learning and making it an even more useful working text and reference. It also contains extensive updates reflecting the latest commercial techniques and understanding of propagation biology. Like previous editions, it is organized into paired chapters on principles and practices, so it can easily be adapted for teaching courses that cover only practical topics, and for courses that also cover conceptual issues.

Hallmark Features

 

Paired practical and conceptual chapters–alternate the principles underlying the science of propagation alternate with the technical practices and skills used for commercial plant propagation

  • Students first learn key concepts, and are then given the practical techniques and “how-to, hands-on” lab practice they need to translate those concepts into success in the field

Clear chapter introductions and objectives–help students understand exactly what they will learn in each chapter, and why it is important

  • Prepares students to learn more quickly, efficiently, and successfully 

Discussion items, keyword lists, in-depth boxed efatures, and extensive references–promote a deeper and more thorough understanding of the entire field

  • Helps students learn more about any topic they are interested in 

Comprehensive coverage–from historical background and basic plant biology concepts through environmental impact and both seed (sexual) and vegetative (clonal) propagation

  • Gives students a single-source resource for all the principles and practical knowledge they need to succeed with plant propagation 

Thorough reference chapters on specific propagation methods–for fruit, herbaceous annual and perennials, and woody plants, respectively

  • Allows students to simply look up the correct propagation method for hundreds of plants — making this book an indispensable working reference for years to come

New to this Edition

Expanded color figures throughout–90%+ of this edition’s images and illustrations are either new or enhanced

  • Helps students learn techniques and concepts more rapidly and effectively  

More thorough coverage of advanced topics–including extensive updates to this book’s references and “Getting More in Depth on the Subject” sections

  • Enables students to delve more deeply into key topics than ever before 

Reflects significant scientific progress–including advances in plant hormone biology and the molecular understanding of plant growth and development

  • Prepares students to understand the newest science and innovations  

Covers the latest techniques and technologies for controlling commercial propagation environment–including important new engineering, computerization, and mechanization systems for propagation

  • Positions students to utilize today’s most effective commercial propagation systems

 Updates propagation techniques for specific crops–includingfruit and nut species; ornamental trees, shrubs, and woody vines; and selected annuals and herbaceous perennials

  • Gives students reliable and current information for whatever plant propagation requirements they may encounter 

New! Study questions at the end of each chapter–designed to complement keywords provided in page margins and web-based student resources at www.prenhall.com/hartmann

  • Provides the detailed review students need to thoroughly master key principles and techniques
