  • Abstract : This book represents an attempt to give a general account of the evolution of the bananas, both wild and cultivated. Though relevant information is drawn from fields of study, as diverse as plant ecology and ethnology. The approach is mainly cytogenetic and it is to a genetically audience that the following pages are primarily addressed. However, the others, interested in more economic aspects of banana production or in the general problems presented by crop-plant evolution, will find matter of interest and utility herein.
