Reviews

"It seems fully justified to quote the editors who say in the introduction: ‘The Encyclopedia of Rose Science brings together in a single publication and on an unprecedented scale, overviews, explanations, and interpretations that no recent publication has attempted.’...This book is a real treasure for all who live in the rose world-breeders, researchers, growers, amateurs and students. Congratulations to the authors and editors!" --ACTA PHYSCIOLOGIAE PLANTARUM (2004)

"The book contains high quality scientific articles that are well written and carefully reviewed, edited, illustrated, with selected references given at the end of each article. The title is an important addition to the published literature as it helps bring some critical reference information on roses in one place. The title is highly recommended for all libraries." -- E-STREAMS, 2004
