This book is being published five years after the event that it reports, namely the First Meeting of the Working Group on Vitis. This delay has been due to the heavy demand by the ECPGR Networks for high quality meeting reports during the past five years, while staff time resources for this purpose at the ECPGR Secretariat have not been increased to match these needs. The 'Discussion and Recommendations' chapter was published on-line in 2003 and has been used by the Working Group as a reference document for action ever since then. Inevitably, this section must largely reflect the ideas current at a past point in time and it therefore maintains an historical record for the Working Group. Although many things have changed since 2003 (for example, the name of the country where the meeting was held), we consider that this book contains much relevant and valuable information. Many of the papers have been revised and updated recently.
