INTRODUCTION A number of plant species, that have only rarely been cultivated in the past, are now being investigated for possible domestication in northern Europe. Species within the Rosaceous genus Chaenomeles (also referred to as the common name of these species) have received increased attention because of their high yield of fruits, which are rich in juice, aroma, and dietary fiber, and because of their presumed potential for cultivation with organic production methods. In the Baltic…

Breeding strategies for the fruit crop Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica)
In this paper, an ideotype for the fruit crop Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica) is established and traits to be specifically considered for selection and breeding are discussed: adaptation and
Molecular and Morphological Diversity in the Plant Genus Chaenomeles
TLDR
Five studies on diversity in the plant genus Chaenomeles are summarised and different strategies for sampling of wild plant material are proposed for C. japonica and C. speciosa to increase diversity in breeding populations and collections.

THE CONTENT OF ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS IN THE FLOWERS AND FRUITS OF CHAENOMELES (Chaenomeles Lindl.)
TLDR
It was revealed that essential elements were accumulated in the flowers and fruits in different quantities, and chaenomeles flowers, fruits and seeds are a valuable raw material, enriched with vital macroand microelements.
Micropropagation of Chaenomeles japonica: A Step towards Production of Polyphenol-rich Extracts Showing Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Activities
TLDR
The conducted research confirmed the regeneration potential of genetically-stable plants of C. japonica under in vitro conditions, the ability of the plantlets to produce polyphenols as those present in field-grown plants, as well as their antioxidant potential.

Resistance and Resistance Breeding in Ornamentals 1
TLDR
Heritability studies in ornamentals with regard to Erwinia amylovora (Burrill) Winslow et al. are started and resistance sources have been identified and it would be desirable to start co–operation in this field on an international level.
Molecular and Morphological Diversity in the Plant Genus Chaenomeles
TLDR
Five studies on diversity in the plant genus Chaenomeles are summarised and different strategies for sampling of wild plant material are proposed for C. japonica and C. speciosa to increase diversity in breeding populations and collections.
Combining ability and patterns of inheritance for plant and fruit traits in Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica)
TLDR
Anefficient breeding strategy for Japanese quince could therefore be based on recurrent selection, as judged from general combining ability estimates.

TLDR
Genetic relatedness in Chaenomeles speciosa, which may have arisen through hybridization betweenC.
First record of Sclerotinia laxa Aderh. Ruhl. in New South Wales: differentiation from S. fructicola (Wint.) Rehm. by cultural characteristics and electrophoresis
TLDR
The electrophoretic patterns for several enzymes clearly distinguished S. laxa from S. fructicola, and these representative reference patterns are useful for species identification.
Dietary fibre and cell-wall polysaccharides in the fruits of Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica).
The dietary fibre in the fruits of 12 genotypes of Japanese quince (Chaenomeles japonica) and 1 genotype of flowering quince (Chaenomeles speciosa) were prepared using two different methods: the
Entomosporium leaf spot of Pomoideae, Rosaceae in Japan. II. Parasitism and over-wintering of the fungus.
TLDR
Symptoms and signs on the evergreen and deciduous host species are described in detail and Morphologically, 25 Japanese collections occurring on 9 host species could not be divided into clearly separated groups.
Floral morphology of Maloideae (Rosaceae) and its systematic relevance
TLDR
No floral characters support the traditional dichotomy of the Maloideae into tribes Crataegeae and Sorbeae, and differences among their flowers support the recognition of Malus, Pyrus, and Sorbus as separate genera.
Cytology of woody members of Rosaceae
TLDR
Meiotic counts have been made on 16 woody species of the family Rosaceae from Indian forests and the tetraploid cytotypes of Sorbus foliolosa appears to be alloploid in nature whereas the triploid of Pyrus communis show autoploid behaviour.
