Plant breeding : Induced mutation technology for crop improvement

  title={Plant breeding : Induced mutation technology for crop improvement},
  author={F. Nov{\'a}k and H. Brunner},
present forms of life are the product of three factors: • mutation, the fundamental source of heritable variation, • environmental factors, which influence the selection of those mutations that survive and reproduce, and • time, during which the genotype and environment constantly interact and evolutionary change is realized. Genetic variation found in nature does not represent the original spectrum of spontaneous mutations. Rather, this is the result of genotypes recombining in populations and… Expand
