This book is especially appealing because complex developmental details are clearly and accurately presented and are based on a thorough review of the literature and the author's personal observations... [It] stands as a testimony to the early corn biologists like Kiesselbach who understood corn as an organism rather than as a collection of parts. The timeliness of the republication of this book could not be better, given that plant anatomy, morphology, and reproduction classes are slowly disappearing from our university campuses. Although we are now in the era of molecular developmental biology, The Structure and Reproduction of Corn stands as a time-honored class that should be on the shelf of every practicing and aspiring corn biologist. The Quarterly Review of BiologyReseña del editor:
The 1949 publication The Structure and Reproduction of Corn, by Theodore Kiesselbach is an indispensable source of knowledge for plant biologists throughout the world but has long been unavailable in printed form. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the appearance of this important work, a new edition has been published on high quality paper that brings out the best in the text's finely detailed illustrations. This edition includes a historical introduction that illuminates the man behind the science, an investigator who applied the lessons of studies of hybrid vigor to create a revolution in corn breeding that transformed the economy of the American prairie states. This small, attractive book is a must for everyone interested in plant development.
