Somatic Cell Genetics of Woody Plants Proceedings of the IUFRO Working Party S2. 04–07 Somatic Cell Genetics, held in Grosshansdorf, Federal Republic of Germany, August 10–13, 1987

Most forest tree species were considered recalcitrant a decade ago, but now with the improved in vitro techniques some progress has been made towards culture-of tree species. Micro­ propagation has been achieved from the juvenile tissues of a number of forest tree species. On the other hand, tissues...
