"Research Publications DVD"

over 50 Research Publications by Ronald A. de Fossard

CD only, $89.00 + shipping ($1.50, U.S. or $4.50 Elsewhere)

In my four earlier CDs on micropropagation, I included references to my published research and the implication was that students and readers interested in the finer details of my work would be able to get this information by looking at these publications. But there lingered a doubt in my mind about whether this was realistic because so many journals and books simply may not be readily available in many parts of the world.

I know that some of these publications were available through GOOGLE and other search engines but, as often as not, these entailed a cost. Indeed, I had lost a reprint of one of my papers and, even though I was author of the paper, I had to pay to get a reprint from the publisher. To overcome this problem for my students and readers, I decided to scan many of my publications and present them on this DVD and to name this:- Ronald de Fossard's Research Publications

These research publications cover a wide range of material often from the beginning of work on a particular species or on the development of techniques and, I would like to think, that they would give encouragement to others in the early stages of their own research.

In my CD "Plant Tissue Culture Propagation, I summarized my research work under the heading “Major Research Work” and I have used this summary as a convenient way of introducing my various publications. These publications are “hidden” so as to permit uninterrupted reading of conclusions. Some of these may be of no immediate interest to individual readers whereas others will contain the intimate details of experiments on sections of more interest. Simply by pointing to a reference, reveals the whole paper.

All in all, this DVD contains about 750 pages of scanned research descriptions covering 55 separate publications in 27 different journals. The complete list, in chronological order, is shown below.
