Herbals spices are those spices whose vegetative parts are used to flavour the food. There are a large number of such spices which have other uses besides flavouring. The present book on herbal spices authored by V.A. Parthasarathy, Utpala Parthasarathy and K.N. Shiva consists of chapters on various important herbal spices such as Celery, Chervil, and Coriander, Curry leaf, Dill, Fenugreek, Hyssop, Lovage, Mint, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, Sage, Savory, Sweet Marjoram and Sweet Basil. Each crop is covered under different sections such as Introduction, Area and production, Composition and uses; History and origin; Botany, Classification and varieties; Genetics and breeding; Biotechnology, Soil and climate; Cultivation, Pests and diseases, Post harvest technology and value addition; and Economics and marketing.
The authors have wide experience in spices. The senior author Dr.V.A. Parthasarathy is a very prolific writer and a well known horticultural scientist and a spice researcher. He has authored over 35 books on horticulture and biotechnology. He authored over 180 research papers and contributed over 100 invited chapters. Dr. Parthasarathy and Dr.Utpala Parthasarathy have edited jointly two volumes on spice crop which were published by Today and Tomorrow?s Printers and Publishers.
This book would be of great use to all spice researchers, students of horticulture, plantation crops and spices besides those interested in growing them. This would be a valuable reference book for researchers, Post graduate students in Plantation crops and spices and also for the ARS examination.

The research of host-virus relations enriched the world of science with invaluable scientific and practical results in the past half of this century.In the last several years the interest in virus hosts and non-hosts has a real renaissance.Hosts and non-hosts play an important role in throwing light upon virus epidemiological problems and correlations.Furthermore,the artificial hosts are indispensable i virus identification,separation and preservation.The non-hosts virus resistance and in virus separation.The breeding research for virus resistance is aimed all over the world at spotting the resistance genes of wild plant species and using this knowledge in practice; the basis of this work is also formed by the investigations into the virus host ranges. This widely extended scientific work is equally important both from the theoretical and practical points of view.
