Practice and promise of micropropagation of woody species


, : Practice and promise of micropropagation of woody species. Acta Horticulturae (79): 113-127

Three principal ways of propagating temperate trees and shrubs in aseptic culture are from meristems and shoot tips, callus, and, potentially, from cell suspensions. Over 50 different species from 19 families have now been propagated or have shown a propensity to regenerate from tissue cultures. The particular values of micropropagation methods to the plant breeder are rapid multiplication, reduced risks of loss of stock, and reduced costs.
