The concept of a book devoted specifically to the reproductive processes of tree crops was proposed by Professor F. L. Milthorpe of Macquarie University, New South Wales, who was a Series Editor of the Academic Press Applied Botany and Crop Science Series until his death in 1985. As a result of his foresight, this book is the first comprehensive attempt to marry experience from the traditionally disparate disciplines of horticulture and forestry. The common life-form of trees has resulted in many similarities of breeding systems, flower, seed and fruit production which transcend this disciplinary boundary. The ecological context in which these attributes have evolved is emphasized in an attempt to promote a more cohesive interdisciplinary approach to the understanding and management of reproductive processes in trees.
