Norman Looney is at the Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre, Canada.Review:
"Contributors from horticulture, plant physiology and pathology, and agricultural engineering provide basic information to commercial fruit growers, horticulturists, and amateur fruit growers. Their treatment can also serve as a text for a basic undergraduate course in pomology. They examine the worldwide distribution of fruit, the effect of climate, and the principles and general practices of fruit growing; then detail aspects of specific types of fruit."--SciTech Book News
