This book offers an insightful look on different biotechnological interventions for the conservation of medicinal and ornamental climbers. The book starts with a discussion on the evolution and diversification of climbers among the angiosperms. Thereafter chapters describe various approaches of conservation, biotechnological strategies like micropropagation, synseed production, genetic transformation for the quality improvement, production of bioactive compounds under in vitro conditions. This book also provides a compilation of standardized in vitro micropropagtion protocols for some threatened climbers. It also includes chapters on various molecular markers and their application in medicinal and ornamental climbers for their desired improvement.
* Provides up-to-date information on the application of biotechnological tools to explore the potentials of climbers
* The chapters on micropropagation, synthetic seed production and bioactive compounds production in vitro are of great significance in the conservation and replenishment strategies, as well as for the pharmaceutical and micropropagation industries
* The information on the use of molecular markers in quality assessment and transgenic plant production provide a platform for further advance research
