Résumé
Leguminosae is a very important family of angiosperms comprising of many species in relation to human nutrition, pasture and fodder needs. Important protein rich seed bearing plants, mostly herbaceous, such as peas, lentils, beans collectively known as pulses are members of this family. They rank next to cereals in terms of human nutrition. In quantitative significance they are far behind the cereals, however, gaining some due importance as food additives in the recent years. Domination of the cereals in the food sector allowed only marginal increases in the overall yield of pulses. Recent concerns over the importance of these crops led to augmented efforts to improve the equality and quantity. Classical and modem breeding technologies resulted in limited succtss in interchange of the desirable characters in these crops. Biotechnological improvement has emerged as a potential supplement to these crops. Advances in plant tissue culture, genetic transformation methods and simultaneous improvements in molecular biology techniques and gene isolations gave an impetus to these efforts. Amalgamation of all these strategies laid foundation for many potential strategies for crop improvement.
