Like the first edition, this second edition is intended to be an all-inclusive publication for those interested in pineapple production or just wanting to better understand the plant. This second edition builds on the accumulated experience of the first edition authors by including new authors from a wider number of producing countries, including new chapters and new developments and by taking advantage of new publishing technology. It contains 13 chapters dealing with topics on pineapple history, distribution and world production; morphology, anatomy and taxonomy; origin and evolution; varieties and breeding; biotechnology; plant growth and physiology; cultural system; plant nutrition; organic production; other uses (e.g. ornamental, source of fibre and enzymes, animal feed); inflorescence and fruit development and yield; pests, diseases, weeds and their management; postharvest physiology, handling and storage.
