Robert "Bob" Wayne Allard (September 3, 1919 – March 25, 2003) was an American plant breeder and plant population geneticist who is widely regarded as one of the leading plant population geneticists of the 20th century. Allard became Chair of the Genetics Department at University of California, Davis in 1967; he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1973, and was awarded the DeKalb-Pfizer Distinguished Career Award and the Crop Science Science of America Award

Plant breeding involves elements of both natural and cultural selection�a process which operates on individual plants and on plant populations. This will help guide new breeding programs to insure continuing progress in providing more food for growing populations, produced with better care of the environment. Contents: INTRODUCTORY TOPICS.

Conventional plant breeding is the development or improvement of cultivars using conservative tools for manipulating plant genome within the natural genetic boundaries of the species. Mendel's work in genetics ushered in the scientific age of plant breeding. The number of genes that control the trait of interest is important to breeders. Qualitative traits (controlled by one or a few genes) are easier to breed than quantitative traits (controlled by numerous genes).

As ancient as agriculture itself, plant breeding is one of civilization's oldest activities. Today, world food production is more dependent than ever on the successful cultivation of only a handful of major crops, while continuing advances in agriculture rely on successfully breeding new varieties that are well-adapted to their human-influenced ecological circumstances. Plant breeding involves elements of both natural and cultural selection-a process which operates on individual plants and on plant populations. This book offers the most recent detailed knowledge of plant reproduction and their environmental interaction, which can help guide new breeding programs and help insure continuing progress in providing more food for growing populations produced with better care of the environment.
