The 1949 publication The Structure and Reproduction of Corn, by Theodore Kiesselbach is an indispensable source of knowledge for plant biologists throughout the world but has long been unavailable in printed form. To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the appearance of this important work, a new edition has been published on high quality paper that brings out the best in the text's finely detailed illustrations. This edition includes a historical introduction that illuminates the man behind the science, an investigator who applied the lessons of studies of hybrid vigor to create a revolution in corn breeding that transformed the economy of the American prairie states. This small, attractive book is a must for everyone interested in plant development.
