An account is given of trials in 1984-87 on the propagation of 17 rare and endangered Caucasian species by seed and by vegetative propagation in Baku Botanical Garden, Azerbaijan. Data are presented on: field germination with different sowing dates; the effect of cold (2-3 degrees C) and warm (18-20 degrees C) stratification on seed germination; and the rooting of cuttings treated with IBA. The species studied were: Albizia julibrissin, Alnus subcordata, Buxus sempervirens, Corylus colurna, Danae racemosa, Diospyros lotus, Euonymus velutina, Ficus carica, Gleditsia caspica, Ilex spinigera, Parrotia persica, Pterocarya pterocarpa, Punica granatum, Platanus orientalis, Quercus castaniefolia, Taxus baccata and Zelkova carpinifolia. Recommendations are made on appropriate ways of propagating these species.
