Description

Introduction to Horticulture Science is the only text of its kind to appropriately cover this subject matter in sufficient detail to be used as a college textbook for a horticultural science class. It provides an excellent survey of all aspects of this area and presents cutting edge research at a level which is understandable to the undergraduate population. This text introduces students to fundamental concepts including an introduction to the green plant; the origin and domestication of plants; the horticulture industry; and the fundamental steps leading to success in a horticulture career. The relationship between horticulture and the environment is discussed in addition to the classification of plants and plant anatomy. Also included is information on plant propagation; media, nutrients and fertilizers; plants and the environment; plant growth regulators; post harvest physiology and pest management; and it concludes with a comprehensive discussion of greenhouse structures; nursery site selection; development and facilities; producing nursery crops; and floral design.
