"Media and Techniques for Growth, Regeneration and Storage 2008-2011"

Volume 15 of Recent Advances in Plant Tissue Culture

by Edwin B. Herman, Editor, Agricell Report

"Media and Techniques for Growth, Regeneration and Storage: 2008-2011" is the fifteenth in a series, based on articles published in Agricell Report, that reports recent developments in plant tissue culture. The Recent Advances in Plant Tissue Culture series is updated within one month of the book's publication date. In order to make it easy for the reader to obtain further information on material covered in the book, a directory consisting of full email and postal addresses is included. The book also includes a plant taxonomic index.
