The Maize Handbook
Michael Freeling and Virginia Walbot, editors

This important book will be an indispensible resource for all students
of maize.  Maize has been prominent as a model for research in genetics
for many decades, and has a collection of methods and mutants unmatched
among plants.  New developments in cell and molecular biology have kept
maize at the forefront of plant research.  The Maize Handbook has been
compiled by a distinguished group of maize researchers to serve as  a
community resource.  The book presents dozens of current protocols in
all areas of maize biology, and includes major sections on development,
morphology and cell biology which will be invaluable to workers needing
detailed guides to maize at the cell, tissue and molecular levels.
