By Haim D Rabinowitch, Lesley Currah

The Alliums are one of the most historic cultivated vegetation and comprise onions, garlic, leeks and different similar crops. the first objective of this publication is to collect, in one quantity, up to date wisdom acquired through various clinical disciplines, from the fundamental molecular point, to program within the box, of the allium plants. It includes commissioned chapters on subject matters that experience proven significant advances rather within the final 10 years reminiscent of molecular biology, floriculture and agronomy. members comprise major international gurus from Europe, the united states, Japan and New Zealand.

In the West it is more rarely grown, mainly for the fresh green leaves, and is eaten as a salad onion (scallion). 5 Insufficiently known and hybrid taxa Allium rhabdotum Stearn. A recently described species, known so far only from herbarium collections made in Bhutan in the eastern Himalayas (Stearn, 1960). It possibly belongs to the Altaicum alliance (Hanelt, 1985) but needs more thorough study from living plants.

Also, in modern breeding, many ‘classical’ cultivar groups have been crossed and the boundaries between the different taxa are becoming blurred, making it difficult to place material within the scheme. The broadly accepted concept of the species A. cepa used here includes races with many lateral bulbs and/or shoots, which rarely bolt, and which are partly seed-sterile, namely shallots and potato onions. Other morphological and karyological characters, isozyme and molecular-marker patterns are almost identical to those of A.
