Oilseeds and legumes provide a significant proportion of the protein and energy requirement of the world's population. This book provides full details of the main oilseed and legume crops, focusing particularly on the nutritional aspects of these crops which are, or have the potential to be, useful in developing coutries where protein and energy malnutrition continue to be escalating problems. The predicted rapid rise of populations in many world regions which are increasingly vulnerable to food shortages means that a full knowledge of the nutritional significance of the crops available is vital for helping to alleviate such potential calamities.

This National Academy of Sciences report describes plants of the family Leguminosae, all of them greatly underexploited. Some are extensively used in one part of the world but unknown elsewhere; others are virtually unknown to science but have particular attributes that suggest they could become major crops in the future; a few are already widespread but their possibilities are not yet fully realized.Most of the plants described in this book have the capacity to provide their own nitrogenous fertilizer through bacteria that live in nodules on their roots; the bacteria chemically convert nitrogen gas from the air into soluble compounds that the plant can absorb and utilize. As a result, legumes generally require no additional nitrogenous fertilizer for average growth. This is advantageous because commercial nitrogenous fertilizers are now extremely expensive for peasant farmers. This report demonstrates how farmers in developing countries, by using leguminous plants, can grow useful crops while avoiding that expense. However, the plants to be discussed here should be seen as complements to, not as substitutes for, conventional tropical crops.

This timely publication brings together into a single volume an overview of the extensive published data on cereal and legume phytates. It presents important information regarding historical background, physiological functions, and uses. Biosynthesis and dephosphorylation, phytase enzyme, and methods for analysis are covered. Also included is invaluable information on occurrence, distribution, content, and dietary intake; and interactions with minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and enzymes. Digestion and bioavailability, nutritional consequences, and technologies for removal of phytates from cereals and legumes are discussed. There are numerous tables and illustrations included. This volume is indispensable for researchers and food scientists in phytate research and the technology/processing of cereals and legumes.

A comprehensive and groundbreaking collection of ideas for plant improvement Most of the world’s supply of legumes is cultivated under adverse conditions that make this commercially important crop susceptible to the vagaries of nature and damaging stresses. Genetic manipulation has become a proven way for cultivators to battle these problems; but there has been a lack of reliable information on the practical aspects of this promising method. Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes fills this void by providing a vast array of groundbreaking essays from some of the discipline’s most renowned experts. This unique collection is your single source for not only the most up-to-date accounts of genetic manipulation employed today, but also ideas for realistic and practical uses. Comprehensive in its approach, Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes presents the latest research on all aspects of genetically modified legume production. With contributions from over 90 international experts, this eye-opening resource offers an in-depth exploration of key topics such as, genetic transformation technology, suppression-subtractive hybridization, c-DNA micro arrays, molecular mapping, tagging regulatory elements, and real-time PCR. Additionally, this text features a wealth of detailed references and informative tables to clearly explain pertinent data. Chapters in Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes detail both family- and species-specific topics such as: • agrobacterium-mediated transformation in trifolium and medicago • biotechnological approaches to soybean improvement • transgenic approaches for enhancement of vitamin E • particle bombardment and SAAT approaches • agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation and in vitro regeneration • plant regeneration via organogenesis, somatic embryogenesis, and protoplast culture • somaclonal variation and its exploitation • cotyledonary node and embryo axes as explants • in planta transformation of pisum sativum l. • de novo regeneration protocol • reverse genetic approaches in medicago truncatula • tagging regulatory elements in plants • gene expression analysis with DNA array technology • advent of diverse DNA markers to decipher genome sequence polymorphism • defensins in legumes • legume-nematode interaction with reference to model legumes • and much, much more! Handbook of New Technologies for Genetic Improvement of Legumes is an invaluable resource for researchers and educators in the area of plant genetic manipulation and plant biotechnology as well as scientists, educators, and graduate students focusing on the genetic manipulation of legumes.
