This book is written for the undergraduate student or lay person who desires an introduction to the principles of seed science and technology.  The first eight chapters present the seed as a biological system in terms of its origin, development, and composition, as well as its function, performance, and ultimate deterioration.  The last seven chapters present the fundamentals of how seeds are produced, conditioned, evaluated, and distributed in our modern agricultural society.
