Beschreibungen

This book was written by soybean experts to cluster in a single publication the most relevant and modern topics in soybean breeding. It is geared mainly to students and soybean breeders around the world. It is unique since it presents the challenges and opportunities faced by soybean breeders outside the temperate world.

Dr. Silva: Has 12 years of experience in genetics and plant breeding. It is currently coordinator of the soybean breeding program at the Department of Plant Science at the Federal University of Viçosa. He develops projects in breeding for abiotic stresses, biometrics, genomics association and genome-wide selection. He is the major professor of several graduate students in genetics and breeding and Plant Science. Book Editor Soybeans: from planting to harvest, published in 2015 in Brazil.Dr. Borem: Has 30+ years of working experience as professional plant biotechnologist and plant breeder, project coordinator, consultant, and university professor including being chairman of several capacity building initiatives. I have carried out international agricultural assignments over 12 countries and international organizations. I also obtained a Ph.D. degree in plant breeding and genetics at the University of Minnesota, USA, and published books in Portuguese, English, Spanish, Korean and Mandarin and several other technical, newspaper articles and awareness materials. As a senior scientist with strong leadership, networking, communication, management and outstanding organizational skills, I have performed assignments for UN bodies (UNIDO and FAO), for CIAT, and several other international organizations. The focus of my professional experience is biotechnology and plant breeding.Dr. Sediyama: Has 40+ years of soybean breeder in Brazil. He was responsible for the development of more than 40 soybean cultivars from central Brazil and has published several books in soybean production and soybean breeding.Mr. Ludke: He is a soybean breeder currently working toward his Ph.D. degree. 
This book was written by soybean experts to cluster in a single publication the most relevant and modern topics in soybean breeding. It is geared mainly to students and soybean breeders around the world. It is unique since it presents the challenges and opportunities faced by soybean breeders outside the temperate world.
Up to date book that brings some topics, as breeding for abiotic and biotic stress and others, that are not addressed in other soybean breeding booksBrazil is the second largest soybean producer and the first in the tropics. There is no other publication discussing soybean breeding under the perspective of scientist in the Southern hemisphere or in the tropical world. The challenges and opportunities faced by tropical soybean breeders are different of those in the temperate climate, as in the US. So, the expertise presented by Brazilian scientists in this book is expected to draw a lot of interest in the scientific communityThis book has an adequate balance between conventional and biotech methods of soybean breeding
