About the book

The family Brassicaceae constitutes one of the world’s most economically important plant groups. They are important sources of vegetable oil, vegetables, and condiments. Most of these crops belong to the genus Brassica. Brassica genus includes very common crops including oilseeds (oilseed rape, mustard) and vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, turnip, Chinese cabbage, etc.). Brassica species play an essential role in horticulture and agriculture, as well as contributing to the health of populations around the world.

The global climatic model predicts a significant decrease in growth, yield, and productivity of Brassica due to various biotic and abiotic stress factors. So high yielding, climate-resilient, disease-resistant, improved qualities of Brassica varieties are required to maintain as well as to increase future agricultural production. Therefore, the development of improved cultivars of these crops may become exhausted, and improvement could become stagnant when plant breeding is merely based on a single breeding approach.

The goal of the breeding programs should be developed genetically superior Brassica cultivars suitable for a wide range of environments. Introgression of insect and disease resistance and other desirable traits into Brassica crops using inter and/or intra-specific hybridization, biotechnological and molecular techniques could be useful for improving Brassica crops through future promising breeding programs to ensure food security.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Kristina Kardum Cvitan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
