"Micropropagation Systems and Techniques 2002-2006""

Volume 10 of Recent Advances in Plant Tissue Culture

by Edwin B. Herman, Editor, Agricell Report

"Micropropagation Systems and Techniques 2002-2006" is the tenth in a series, based on articles published in Agricell Report, that reports recent developments in plant tissue culture. This volume includes information on micropropagation of approximately 200 plant species.

Unlike most plant tissue culture books, which have a long publication delay, the Recent Advances in Plant Tissue Culture series is updated within one month of the book’s publication date. None of the material in this book has been published in previous volumes of the series.

In order to make it easy for the reader to obtain further information on material covered  in  the  book,  a  directory  consisting  of  full  addresses  of  cited  authors  is included. The directory includes e-mail addresses when available. The book also includes a list of recent meetings and symposia in which plant tissue culture-related papers were presented, and a taxonomic index.
