Orchid Biotechnology IV presents a series of recent work on both basic and applied researches in biotechnology progress for Phalaenopsis, Oncidium and Erycina pusila orchids. These include breeding of Phalaenopsis orchids of black flower, big-white flower and small and floriferous flowers, physiology for shipping and photosynthesis, SSR markers and mitochondrial DNA markers, virus detection and antiviral immunity, embyogenesis and relationship with mycorrhiza symbiosis, transposon and retrotransposon, orchid genome and evolution, regulation of orchid floral scent, floral color modification, and abiotic stress tolerance. The diversity and specialization in orchid floral morphology have fascinated botanists and collectors for centuries. The orchid industry has been growing substantially worldwide. To advance the orchid industry, enhancement of basic research as well as advanced biotechnology will provide a good platform to improve the flower quality and the breeding of new varieties. This book provides a first-hand and up-to-date information on orchid breeding, orchid genome evolution, detection of virus in nanotechnology, molecular markers for cultivar identification for orchid lovers, researchers and industry growers.
