"The wild and indigenous cultivated potatoes of South America are of equal interest to the student of plant evolution, the taxonomist and the plant breeder. The use to which they have been put in breeding cultivated potatoes for disease resistance is well known. The South American material, however, in spite of a long series of specialist collecting expeditions, is still very imperfectly known, and the taxonomy and nomenclature are fraught with difficulty. Such a situation invites the attention of monographers and there have been many such, the most recent being D. S. Correll, whose book The potato and its wild relatives was published in 1962 [cf. XXXIII, The senior author of the present volume has been at the forefront of taxonomic research on the South American potatoes for the last thirty years, beginning with his early collecting expeditions and more recently pioneering in such techniques as immunoelectrophoretic analysis." - cabdiect. 525pp plus 150 b/w plates.
