Methods of strawberry cultivation have undergone extensive modification and this book provides an up-to-date, broad and balanced scientific review of current research and emerging challenges. Subjects covered range from plant propagation, architecture, genetic resources, breeding, abiotic stresses and climate change, to evolving diseases and their control. These topics are examined in three sections: - Genetics, Breeding and Omics - covering genetic resources, breeding, metabolomics, transcriptomics, and genetic transformation of strawberry. - Cultivation Systems and Propagation - discusses plant architecture, replanting problems and plant propagation techniques. - Disease and Stress Management - deals with traditional and emerging fungal diseases, their diagnosis and modern biocontrol strategies, and biotechnological interventions for dealing with the challenges of climate change. Strawberry: Growth, Development and Diseases is written by an international team of specialists, using figures and tables to make the subject comprehensible and informative. It is an essential resource for academics and industry workers involved in strawberry research and development, and all those interested in the commercial cultivation of strawberries. ; This book includes up-to-date information on all aspects from plant propagation, architecture, genetic resources, breeding, abiotic stresses and climate change, to evolving diseases and their control. It is written by an international team of specialists and covers current knowledge and emerging challenges. ; 1: Strawberries: a General AccountPART I: GENETICS, BREEDING AND OMICS2: Genetic Resources of the Strawberry3: Strawberry Breeding4: Chilean White Strawberry: Phenolic Profiling of its Different Parts5: Role of Fungal Avirulent Pathogens in the Defence Response of Strawberry6: Agrobacterium-mediated Genetic Transformation of StrawberryPART II: CULTIVATION SYSTEMS AND PROPAGATION7: Plant Architecture in Different Cultivation Systems8: Strawberry Root Growth and Architecture in Relation to Organic Residues and Replanting Problems9: Plant Propagation Techniques and Type of PlantsPART III: DISEASE AND STRESS MANAGEMENT10: Fungal Diseases of Strawberry and their Diagnosis11: New Biocontrol Strategies for Strawberry Fungal Pathogens12: Emerging Diseases in Strawberry Crop: Charcoal Rot and Fusarium Wilt13: Induced Systemic Resistance to Fusarium Wilt and Antioxidative Ability in Mycorrhizal Strawberry Plants14: Challenges of Climate Change to Strawberry Cultivation: Uncertainty and Beyond15: Molecular and Physiological Responses of Strawberry Plants to Abiotic Stress
