Postharvest: an introduction to the physiology and handling of fruit, vegetables and ornamentals. Fourth edition. R Wills, B McGlasson, D Graham and D Joyce. 1998. 262 pp. ISBN 0 86840 560 4 (UNSW Press) ISBN 0 85199 264 1 (CABI)
Production of fruit, vegetables and ornamentals has been increasing worldwide and represents a huge investment of resources in transport, storage, and marketing facilities designed to maintain a continuous supply of these perishable goods. The goals of postharvest practices are to protect that investment. Essentially a textbook, this new version of an earlier work has been substantially updated to include ornamentals and to reflect modern industrial practices and technology. Particularly noteworthy is the book's coverage of tropical produce. Clearly written and well-illustrated, this book should be of interest to students of horticulture; nutritionists; farming company technologists, transport workers and retailers; packing house managers; government advisers and concerned consumers.
