Biographies

Yvonne Aitken was a graduate of agricultural studies at the University of Melbourne who made major contributions to the science of plant breading. Her work has focused on the factors which control or influence the rate of reproductive development in common agricultural crops. Her goal, along with others in the field, was to produce a greater range of consumable crops for people and animals. This research resulted in the production of several publications including her 1974 book "Flowering, Time, Climate and Genotype". Aitken was also an avid artist, making pictorial records of her work and field explorations.
