Without consistent growth in this scientific field GMO crops will continue to flourish likely damaging our environments.
Plants provide the energy for all organisms in higher trophic level, for this reason learning about plant reproduction is essential to living in a sustainable world.
Gaining further understanding of the reproductive methods of plants will aid in the development of new approaches in biotechnology, agriculture and the food industry to improve crops yields. Although most desirable crop traits are polygenic, no plant breeding tools exist, which allow the efficient fixation of multigenic traits over successive generations.
Improvements in the studies of seed and pollen dispersal can counter the growing concerns of human destruction of our environment.
