Pomological research is mainly focused on the development, cultivation and physiological studies of fruit trees. The goals of fruit tree improvement include enhancement of fruit quality, regulation of production periods, and reduction of production cost.[1]

Resources[edit]

  • Pomology Teaching Tools
  • Botany Ink Drawing - how to make botanical drawings
  • Tropical and Subtropical Pomology I - contain lessons with the most important fruits of the world=under-graduate level.
  • Tropical and Subtropical Pomology II - contain lessons with important fruits to the regional markets=under-graduate level.
  • Tropical and Subtropical Pomology III - contain lessons with less important fruits of tropics and subtropics=under-graduate level.
  • Special Tropical and Subtropical Pomology - it contains the knowledge of Tropical and Subtropical Pomology I-III, but going deeper (there are more projects). On the site of theoretical studying participants can also study practical things by their own or with a teacher. They are also doing a primary research (=literature survey)=graduate level.
  • Ethnobotany of Fruit Crops - this subject tries to cover the fruit crops with a local importance and focuses on their ethnobotany. Students are working upon research ethnobotanical projects (firstly needs to establish Wikiversity research policy!) according their interests. Opening a new project is free and also the working teams
  • Banana Production - highly specialized subject on the most consumed fruit of the world.
  • Citriculture - highly specialized subject on the most consumed fruit of the subtropics.
