This compilation is an introduction to classic scientific papers in horticulture. Each paper chosen concerns a plant or phenomenon and has in some way impacted horticultural scientific tradition or the horticulture industry. Divided into three sections (Propagation and Tissue Culture, Physiology and Culture, Breeding and Genetics), many papers date from the 20th century, with some from the 18th and 19th centuries, and one from 300 B.C. Each paper is accompanied by an introductory essay contributed by a prominent horticulturist. These essays place the historic papers in their contemporary setting as well as describe their impact on the future course of horticulture. Each single or multi-authored paper has a unique story to tell and many still engender controversy and passion today. Taken together, they underscore the richness and diversity of horticultural science.
