About the book

Asteraceae has several species of economic and medicinal importance. The latest Asteraceae research has opened up new opportunities for crop improvement. This book will discuss the advances in biotechnology, genetic diversity, molecular breeding, genotyping, association mapping studies, comparative and functional genomics, and epigenomics in Asteraceae. The book will also discuss biotic and abiotic stresses, transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics approaches in Asteraceae, as well as the potential uses of Asteraceae in phytoremediation and pharmaceuticals. Current research trends, future research directions, and challenges will be highlighted. This book will be a self-contained collection of scholarly papers targeting an audience of practicing researchers, academics, students, and scientists.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

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.
