Precocious flowering and seeding behaviour in tissue-cultured bamboos
BAMBOO flowers only once during its lifetime, dying at the end of its first fruiting season. This monocarpic flowering is intriguing not only in that it occurs after a lapse of 12 to 120 years, butExpand

Somatic embryogenesis in Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus species are amongst the most widely planted trees in the world (Zacharin, 1978). They have very rapid growth rates and they can adapt to a wide range of climates and soil conditions. TheseExpand

Tissue culture of forest trees: Clonal multiplication of Tectona grandis L. (teak) by tissue culture
Abstract Multiple shoot formation was induced from excised seedling explants of Tectona grandis L. (teak) and also from excised terminal buds of 100-year-old ‘elite’ teak trees on a defined mediumExpand

A comparison of in vitro with in vivo flowering in bamboo: Bambusa arundinacea
Seedling explants of Bambusa arundinacea were cultured in a Murashige & Skoog (MS) based liquid medium, supplemented with sucrose (2), coconut water (5) and 6-benzylaminopurine (2.2 μM). In 3–6Expand

In vitro plantlet formation by organogenesis in E. camaldulensis and by somatic embryogenesis in Eucalyptus citriodora
Adventitious shoots were formed through callus on leaf explants of Eucalyptus camaldulensis Dehnh. (River red gum) taken from shoot cultures of mature trees. Callus formed in dark on a mediumExpand

Anther culture in Helianthus annuus L., influence of genotype and culture conditions on embryo induction and plant regeneration
SummaryProduction of microspore-derived embryos from cultured anthers is now a well established technique for the isolation of homozygous lines in many crop plants. We describe here a culture methodExpand

Floral biology and breeding behavior in the bamboo Dendrocalamus strictus Nees.
Floral biology and breeding behavior were studied in the bamboo Dendrocalamus strictus Nees. The inflorescence in this species is a large branching panicle. Fertile florets are intermixed withExpand

Somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration inAzadirachta indica A. Juss
SummaryMedia for induction of somatic embryogenesis from immature cotyledonary tissues ofAzadirachta indica (Neem) were determined. Callus was initiated on Murashige and Skoog medium supplementedExpand

Tissue culture of forest trees—Clonal propagation of mature trees of Eucalyptus citriodora Hook, by tissue culture
Abstract Multiple shoots were obtained from terminal buds of 20-year-old trees of Eucalyptus citriodora Hook on Murashige and Skoog's medium supplemented with calcium pantothenate, biotin,Expand
