The IBR Concept and Plant Sciences

  • Lewis G. Mayfield
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 14)


This has been an excellent conference and the papers and the participants have been stimulating. Plant research is a difficult area to pursue for several reasons. One must have enough patience and time to observe plants throughout their seasonal life cycle to have a full understanding of the plant and this experience must be integrated for various types of stress. Dr. Hollaender’s story about the consequences of a plant breeding failure emphasizes the necessity of observing the productivity of a plant under various types of stress before planting on a large scale.
